Goal of the Week #45: Write Your End-of-the-Year Bio

Bio 2014This Week’s Goal: Write your end-of-the-year bio. We’ll be talking about annual goals a lot this month. It is, after all, January, and what you do this month could set you up for year-long success.

This week, write the bio you want to have by the end of 2014. You can include previous awards, jobs, and accomplishments, of course. But be sure to add in what you plan to achieve this year, including career benchmarks, company or product launches, and/or press, awards, and book releases. One more thing, write this bio in the present tense. It’s important to “tell the universe” what you want as if you already have it. The power of positive thinking – and doing – works!

Share a few lines from your end of 2014 bio in the comments.

Goal of the Week #30 Update Your Bio

LinkedInThis week’s goal: Update your bio. In this competitive work environment, it’s important to keep your bio and work experience up-to-date. This week, schedule time to look at all the places where you post your work experience – your resume and your website bio, as well as your LinkedIn and other social media profiles.

Make sure you last job is accurate and add any new skills, accomplishments, and organizations or clubs. Also, update your headshot, press clips, or work examples, and anything else that might be relevant.

Try to do a check of your bio and resume at least once a season. It’s helpful – and more professional – to have your most accurate information at the ready for potential employers as well as people who want to do business with you.
