dear all, i was running a small startup company for 5 years after finishing my UG. then i went for 2 year PG study. now i want to join mnc company. what should i mention in my CV. my friends ask me to show that i was working for 5 years. i dont have any proof for that 5 years. please give your suggestions
thank you

Dear Elabz,

After graduation, you show your position as "Self-employed" in your CV. Later two years period show in Education Development.

For the proof of your self-employment, you might have income tax returns or license of Shops and Establishment Act, Articles of Association etc.

By the way, the question arises that why you wish to do job now? Why you do not wish to continue with your business? Five years is no insignificant period. To run a business, you need to deal with customers, employees, vendors, service providers and so on. You must have gained wealth of experience. Why you wish to abandon it now? Is it not advisable to conflate your previous experience and newly acquired education and aim to do something better?

Working in MNC would mean working under a boss and obeying his/her instructions. The kind of freedom you had earlier that you will not have in job. A feeling might creep in your mind that "I could do far better job than the boss". Therefore, doing job would mean doing great mental re-alignment. Are you prepared for that? A fish that swam earlier in river or remained in sea freely has to get into aquarium!

All the best!

dear dinesh, thanks for the reply.
i still wish to do business or to do PHd, but my parents insist me to go to a job so that they look for a girl to get married. i was trying but i didnt get the opportunity to do a PHd in a foreign university. i dont have any proof other than a bank current account in my company name. no tax nor registration. i had mentally prepared for a job.
shall i mention self employment in my CV will MNC encourage people like me to work. the next problem is what should i quote as my CTC and required CTC. i know lot of loop holes but please help me to sort out.
thank again

wow, at last i am selected for a job and the company is ok to accept me only with experience certificate.
