Start Crafting Your Professional Bio for Social Platforms

Hi J445 Job Hunters. I hope you got a lot out of yesterday’s whirlwind resume class. Just a reminder that I’m happy to go through resume drafts with you during office hours, which are:

  • Today: 11 a.m. – noon
  • Thursday: 9:30 a.m. – 11 a.m.

Since we’re focused on resumes now and diving into LinkedIn Monday, I thought I’d share a few interesting sources with you. Yesterday, I recommended The Daily Muse. These two articles I originally found there:

The New Resume Tool You (and Recruiters) Will Love

How to Write a Professional Bio for Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Google+

One more gem about professional social bios is this one from CNN, Twitter Bios: Don’t Be A Rock Star Guru.

Regardless of your political beliefs, you have to admit that Hillary Clinton has a pretty sweet Twitter bio. I’m going to be reworking mine, which is accurate, but dull. Let’s see what you come up with in the coming weeks.

Best, @DebraJChico
