A biography is a great tool to record and document your career progress as you move up the ladder. A biography should give a work history for you. It tells the reader why you are ‘worthy’. When you write your first one, you may not be. Try to believe in yourself and have bold confidence even before you have a long list of companies that you have worked for. If you have experience, and you haven’t yet written one, shame on you. That is OK, though. You can write one now. I insist; before you do one more thing today, write a quick and easy bio, whether or not you feel worthy or like you need one.
B I O G R A P H Y
::::__ (your name) is the ::::___ (title of your current job) at :::::____ (company you work for) working to :::::__ (standard company goal or business statement of purpose).
Prior to his current role at :::::_ (company), ::____ (last name) was ::::: (what was your title and what did you do?) :::::::.
:::____ (last name) received his :::_ (name of degree) in ::::_ (specialty) from :::__ (university) .
This is a great start. Congratulations. Now I suggest you write a Bio that reflects where you would like to be five to seven years from now. Picture your Bio as you progress up the corporate ladder. Use it at a motivational tool to visualize your successful career path and your journey.
