I am an Electronics and Instrument Field Tech (seismic oilfield, Antarctic research station, research vessels) who has been out of professional work since 2008. I conducted a job search during this period but was rather complacent due to an interest in equities trading. While this endeavor was very much an arduous full time job I think that a prospective employer may look at it as a frivolous indulgence.
The resume entry would appear as follows:
Equities Investor/Trader- Self employed. Jul-2008 – 2013
· Completion of fourteen week curriculum in live online Swing Trading College course- Lectures by Larry Connors, CEO Trading Markets. (Intensive study of quantitative approach to equities trading).
· Studied “The Technical Analysis Course” by Thomas Meyers.
· Successfully applied chart analysis and quantitative analysis to equities trading.
Responsibilities & Skills.

As I say, have been busy. But I want to get back to the real world and have certainly lost a measure of credibility. Do I run with this or just leave a big gap?
Thank you for your insights and opinions.
