As a student in my freshman year, I got into a very lucrative industry of selling MMO currency, accounts, and in game related services.
One year fast forward I have over 3000 monthly customers and am making 10x what my dad makes. Fast forward another year I quit my uni, I am renting 2 apartments filled with PCs and consoles botting games on software I wrote. Taught myself C#, .net. Made a killing for 5 years. Got great programming experience and skill.
All under the table. No reported income, never even made a company. 3rd world country I live in never cared for paypal money I was getting, never cared for me never paying taxes.
Last year I proposed to a girl. She wants me to do something more adult with my life. I'm 29. I finished my school, graduated. Now I am officially a programmer that studied for 11 years and worked nowhere.
What can I put in my CV? How do I explain the 5 years gap? How do I make my knowledge and experience known?
