Professional Biography???

Hi Ladies,

I need your help. My DH got a new job. (Thank God) Anyway, he was asked to write a biography before he starts so they know a bit more about him. Does anyone have any tips on what he should write. Should he be more professional; goals etc, or should he write more about his personal life?

Thanks in advance!

  • If they asked for a "professional" biography, I would think they want to know what he has done in his work life - what he has accomplished, is particularly proud of, etc. He might want to add a paragraph toward the end about his "other" accomplishment - his family, but I would stick to mostly professional stuff if I was asked to write a "professional biography". GL - hope the new job works out well for you all !!

  • Stick to professional information and education. At most, I would put one personal sentence. This sounds like something they want to put on the company's web site or in a newsletter.

  • If it's for a job, then he should stick to his educational history and job history. He can mention his family but it shouldn't be the bulk of the bio. He can mention hobbies as well as long as they are professional sounding. In other words, include something like photography but leave out something like skeet shooting. He should also include any awards he has received and any professional organizations he belongs to.
