Today, people are going after their goals at different times in their lives. So success or a change in career, or even a change in lifestyle, can come at any time. It is for these reasons that an updated personal bio is crucial.
Think of a personal bio as a roadmap of where you’ve been thus far. Your bio will capture in an orderly fashion how your life has played out. As we weave the path of our lives, a story is being created and that story will be a representation of who you are and what you have done. It is twofold; it includes what you have actually done and what we are symbolically doing, so when you put your personal bio together things really make sense.
An example comes to mind. A client of ours always wanted to be a teacher, but after college she went to work for a very large athletic shoe company. So we asked her what she does at this shoe company, and she said that she trains new executive-bound employees. So ultimately, she did fulfill her desire to teach.
Now, that doesn’t mean that she will stay at the shoe company and continue teaching there forever. She would be a perfect example of why having a personal bio ready is important. A new career opportunity could be waiting around the corner!
This client, after working at this company for 15 years, she decided to change careers. She decided she wanted to go back to school and get a different degree to teach the blind. Now, her story takes on that symbolic meaning we are referring to. It wouldn’t matter what she chose to do. Every time your life takes a different direction, it is important to capture this in your bio to tell your full story.
