I founded a startup and worked for it solely for years, so I actually did almost everything such as marketing, business development, sales and etc.
I'm now looking for a job in an enterprise company, and want to open a LinkedIn profile so recruiters can view me when I send them an application.
Assuming I'm now looking for a "Marketing Manager" position, how should I list my previous title in my startup?
If I'll just write "Marketing manager", it would sound as if I worked in a small role for an unknow organization. I want to emphasize it was my own startup, and that I was the person in charge of marketing, and didn't worked under someone above me in such role.
Should I write it as a single custom title: "Founder and Head of Marketing" for example? (sounds better than "Founder and Marketing Director" IMO.
Another important technical question is, when recruiters are scanning for people looking for job as a "marketing manager", would having a custom title such as "founder and head of marketing", will be counted in their search or not? I mean, is linkedin smart enough to figure that such a title should match a "marketing manager" title?
