Professional Bio

Directions

Respond to the prompt in 200-300 words. Please include at least one photo of yourself in addition to the prose text.

Prompt

Please write a short biography of your professional accomplishments and interests.  Your bio should include the following: Your name; current position and what it is/what you do; company or school name and what they are/do; one professional accomplishment; briefly state your values or work philosophy, and how your values/philosophy inform your career.

Since the audience you imagine writing this for will shape your choices, please consider the following as you write: should you write the Bio in first or third person? Should you show what kind of person you are outside of work? Can/should you include examples, if so what kind? Should you include “jokes” and/or what sort of tone should you use?
