How Do I Write a Good Bio?

Your bio is what clients and staffing teams see when they’re selecting a worker for a job. It’s their first impression of you, and a good bio can help promote you and show your skills.

A good bio:

  • Brief, but effective. Keep it to 2-4 sentences and under 240 characters.
  • Showcases your experience in a particular skill. (How long you have been doing the type of work that falls under a particular category. Do you have any certifications?)
  • Explain why you would be the best choice for a job. (How you would go above and beyond for this type of work.)
