I've been using manager tools for a long time, and love the straight forward advice given by Mark & Mike - Thank you both for providing this online service.
When I graduated university I set out with the intent to build a company in China, and when the time was right to sell the company and move back to the States. That was 12 years ago, and after selling to my partner in China, I've just moved back to the States.
I am now seeking a role within a USA based fortune 500 company in business development or operations, preferably with a link to Asia to leverage previous experience and fluent Mandarin Chinese.
Having been in China working for local companies, and then later working as an entrepreneur building my company (a 15 person import export consulting company with warehouse space & and managing clients world wide), I am having difficulty with my job search.
Having run a company, I was involved in all aspects of the operations - accounting, logistics, product development, legal, contracts and business development. Well rounded business knowledge, but no specialty which many companies are looking for.
Is there anyone out there who has been in a similar position?
Any thoughts on job search strategy?
Thanks in advance - Siri Khalsa
