Looking to get up-and-out of my current private-sector scientist position, I've been rewriting my resume to target more senior science jobs with more of a management or strategic character to them. Obviously I've been playing up every relevant aspect of my experience on my submissions, but what I don't have is an MBA. Some of my competitors for these jobs probably do - in addition to their science PhD. I've sort-of taken a few business courses* over the years, though. Better than nothing?

I am looking for a new job and would like to make a slight career change. Right now, I have a full time job and a side business. While I am qualified for my "ideal job," in order to demonstrate this on paper, I will have to emphasize my side business. How do I list both my side business and full time job on my resume without giving off the impression that I am a distracted or disloyal employee. [more inside]

Does anyone have a recommendation for a job posting/administration application that uses either ASP or ColdFusion? I'm looking to implement something that will allow users to search jobs and submit their resume and will allow the HR department to post, edit, and delete jobs.
