So it’s Friday night and you get an urgent email from your boss. It’s a request for a professional bio that you need for a big client meeting coming up on Tuesday morning. You think to yourself (after you’ve panicked and paced around the room for a couple of minutes) — okay, where do I start?
You’ve got an old LinkedIn profile that needs cleaning and polishing up, but it’s certainly nowhere near ready for primetime. You’re proud of your career and what you’ve worked so hard to accomplish, but how do you put that into words that would make someone stand up and take notice?
It’s truly hard to write about yourself, as anyone who has attempted this task certainly knows. What do you highlight and what do you leave out? Does that first job you had for six months count for anything in your current career track? How about that volunteer work with the homeless you did over the summer, does that add any brownie points in a professional bio?
The answers to these questions lie in just what kind of image you’re trying to portray to your audience. If you’re trying to score a speaking gig in your industry, any sort of positions you’ve held that reflect your ability as a thought leader should definitely be included in your professional bio. If you’re in need of a short bio that highlights your abilities in your field (as part of a work team, as shown in the request we mentioned in the beginning of this blog) then some brief mentions of your career positions are definitely in order.
