Help please- composing CV after being a home trader

Hi All,

I took a career break to trade from home, and long story short I just dont know whether trading is for me and I'm having a wobble so decided to work on my CV today.

It's been a while and I'm stuck on what to even put to describe everything... Please could someone help me? I dont even know what to put as my title... I obviously want to sound professional but not sure if "home trader" really sounds the right thing to put.

I also need some help on what to do in the "job description" bit....

Can anyone please help me...
Thanks in advance

I put portfolio manager on mine. That is what you would put if you worked at a fund. I haven't applied for any jobs though.

Are you talking about a job involving trading?

The best CV should be customised to the post you're interested in. Beyond that you need to identify if the job will demand very specific skills / experience or generic "competencies".

Don't mention home. If anyone asks say you had an office.

Oh really? How can I lie about that as won't they need an address? Why isn't it a good idea to mention home?

Job description: professional gambler, lost shirt, no money, give'us a job.

Alternatively you can just lie, get some friends to give you references.

Additional alternative is to get low pay job. They won't care as much who you are or where you have been if you are cheap.

You do not put the address of your job on a CV.

Depends on the situation. I put post codes of previous jobs on CV because I had very strong post codes. I believe it worked to my advantage.

For self employment, I personally would have no problem to just call it home office.
