Project 1: Professional Bio
ENG 302: Business Writing/Hoyt
An effective way to establish your Personal Brand is through a Professional Bio, which is
a persuasive means to introduce yourself in the business world. When conducting an
online search, prospective employers are more likely to encounter your Professional Bio
before your other professional materials, including a resume. An appealing & informative
Professional Bio will persuade your audience to learn more about you.
Your Professional Bio is an opportunity to market yourself by discussing what makes you
stand out as interesting, credible, & worthwhile from a professional perspective.
Common elements include personal background, education, experiences,
achievements, interests, & goals. You want to choose content that best represents you,
provides an interesting narrative, & enables readers to get to know you as a person.
A Professional Bio is an important element for social media accounts (LinkedIn,
Facebook, etc.), personal websites, and professional ePortfolios. A Professional Bio also
goes beyond marketing an individual. Notice how professionals in various companies,
government agencies, & community organizations present themselves to the public via
their Professional Bios. They personalize the interface with stakeholders, enabling them
to “meet” the individuals in charge of the business.
A Professional Bio needs to be tailored for specific venues & audiences. A Professional
Bio for an application to graduate school or an internship will be much longer than one
for a social media profile. The former may be as long as an essay, while the latter may
be only 2 sentences. The ability to adapt your information in long & short versions is
essential for success.
There are different perspectives on whether to write a Professional Bio in 3rd person
(“she” or “he”) or 1st person (“I”). Using 3rd person is a more formal approach, while 1st
person is a more casual one. Choose the approach that is required or most appropriate
for your audience. This assignment calls for 3rd person.
PURPOSE: Develop the ability to present yourself professionally & persuasively through
writing to establish your Personal Brand. These skills can also be applied to personal
statements for applications (internships, scholarships, grad school, study abroad),
professional ePortfolios, & social media accounts (LinkedIn, Facebook, etc.).
Create two (2) versions of a Professional Bio with a photo for networking purposes.
Business professionals are your target audience.
A. A long Professional Bio in 3rd person (Minimum 200 words; Maximum
B. A brief Professional Bio in 3rd person [This will be adapted from your
longer Bio written for item A above]. (Minimum 50 words; Maximum 100
Introduce yourself & inform your audience about your background, which may
include some or all of the following:
Professional experience (work, internship, etc.),
Involvement in the community, organizations, &/or clubs
Achievements (i.e., honors, awards, etc.)
Leadership roles, &/or
Other relevant information, such as fluency in two or more languages.
Identify your specific professional goals in relation to your field of interest &/or
type of job. It’s not enough to merely say you want to be an Accountant in a
major firm or start your own business. Make yourself stand out from others on the
Throughout your Professional Bio provide specific information and examples to
illustrate each statement you make.
Weak: “I was awarded a scholarship.” vs.
Strong: “I was awarded the Dean’s Scholarship for my Junior and Senior years.”
Use 12- or 11-point font in Times New Roman or Arial.
Put your name in bold font centered at the top.
Include a professional photo of yourself.
Provide the text of each version of your Bio in block paragraphs (single-spaced,
no indents, & double-space between paragraphs).
Break down text into paragraphs for readability & professional presentation.
Indicate the date you composed the bios at the very end of each version.
Save both versions of your Professional Bio plus your photo in one (1) Word
document & submit it to the designated SafeAssignment on the course site.
**Refer to the Syllabus & Course Schedule for the deadlines for Rough Draft, Peer
Review, & Final Draft.

Talon was raised by a community of artists and developed an eye for design at young age. She has been
a freelance illustrator, designer, and artist since she was in middle school, even creating pieces for the
United Nations. She has been awarded several art awards and has had her art featured in art
shows. She is currently illustrating a sex education book for the LGBTQ community, working as a t-shirt
designer, teaching herself photography and video editing, and developing a personal website that will
serve as a portfolio for her work. Her love for art has encouraged her to put it at the center of her Barrett
Thesis project, where she will be analyzing the relationship between memory, art, and death.
Aside from her passion for art and design, Talon is passionate about sustainability. Last year she worked
closely with a Barrett faculty member on a project studying entomophagy (the consumption of insects),
and its effects on culture, health, and the planet. This project has inspired Talon to utilize her writing and
design skills to pursue a career in the marketing of insects for human consumption in America.
When Talon isn’t studying, writing, designing, or eating bugs, she is listening to podcasts, rock climbing,
enjoying the outdoors, or all of the above!
