Executive biographies are one-page documents written in the third-person perspective using a narrative story format to describe information about your career history and accomplishments, education and other credentials, core values, brand attributes, and more. There may be times when you will be asked for a bio rather than a resume and there are other times when it may feel more appropriate to submit a bio than a full resume.
You may use your biography as a handout at networking events or when submitting a business proposition. Other common uses include submitting a board bio when positioning yourself for board of director seats or using a speaker bio for speaking engagements.
Distinctive executive biography templates have been created specifically for Microsoft Word. They have not been tested with Pages, Google Docs, or other word processors. Each professional bio template comes with a coordinating letterhead / cover letter template. Coordinating resume templates are available separately. Purchase a biography template, download it, and begin using it immediately to build your executive bio. Just replace the “dummy” text in the biography with your own bio text. Some collections also include a coordinating references sheet template and/or resume addendum template.
