Your professional bio is, arguably, the most important piece of copy you’ll ever write about yourself. It’s the first introduction to who you are, what you do, and what you’re interested in—whether a blurb on a social media platform, a personal website or company team page. What you choose to highlight may play a role in others deciding to follow you, call you in for an interview, or invite you to participate in an event.
In spite of the myriad ways bios can vary—from super serious to light and fun—fortunately, the standard ones all follow a similar format and are somewhat formulaic in their approach. Check out these easy-to-follow bio templates for getting started on writing your own.
