EXPERIENCING A LITTLE WRITER’S BLOCK?
When it comes to writing a professional bio we often catch a case of writer’s block. Not because we don’t know ourselves well enough to write our own bio, but because what exactly do people want to know? How much information is too much information, how do we know when we haven’t provided enough details, should I talk about my personal life in addition to my professional life? This quick list of do’s and don’ts should help you get started.
A professional bio is meant to do the following:
- Explain your professional experiences. Talk about things like your education and what led up to your current career status.
- Explain your current career responsibilities. How do these resonate with the consumer?
- Make your true passion known. Talk about how and why your career gets you up in the morning.
- Make whoever reads this feel connected with you. Talk about your family, spouse, children, hobbies, etc.
