Executive Biography Samples

Purpose: Executive biographies are often asked for during executive job searches

Quick Tips for Writing an Executive Biography:

The above documents are sample executive biographies to be used both during and after your job search. The average job seeker can use a biographical sketch to help them complete online profiles such as those on LinkedIn and Facebook. Biographies are helpful to entrepreneurs seeking funding for a business plan. Executives may be asked for a biography instead of or in addition to a resume during the job search. Biographies are also often asked for when you speak at events or participate as a member of boards. Once you have been hired, you may be asked for a biography by the new employer, to be used in their marketing materials. Like resumes, biographies should be written to emphasize your personal brand and really showcase what is unique and special about you. Biographies are also the document in which it is acceptable to briefly mention personal information about hobbies or your family–items that you would not include in your resume.

I have spent hours on the final draft that you sent, I also showed it to a dear friend and mentor who has seen 100X more resumes than I and hired and fired more high level execs than I will ever know, she was quite impressed!

...Although we have never met you and I are the team that will insure that my family is taken care of. All of this to say that I am extremely pleased with the final product! I have been too close to see how truly efficient and functional the document is. You fit a tremendous amount of "stuff" in a pretty concise package. The biggest problem with writing your own resume is objectivity, when to include something and when to leave it out, it should be easy (if I'm as good as the resume makes me sound), but it is very difficult. I learned a long time ago that all business is basically the same, but as humans we think that just because we are unique, our situations are unique and no one else can understand what we do, have done and/or need in business. You delivered a product that proves that you too have that understanding but more importantly know how to make us feel and look as unique as we are. The resume is outstanding, type style, layout, conciseness and its packed with good quality writing. I am very pleased. Our exchanges have been lively, thought provoking and insightful, I'm glad you are my side! Again thanks for everything, you will get referrals, and if its okay I will keep you posted on my success.

It is an excellent marketing document. Congratulations! As a marketing executive I couldn't have done better myself!

Thanks for getting back to me so quickly. I will review your "custom tailored responses" and get back to you over the weekend. Not only will I be more than happy to endorse your services, but I would welcome personal contact with anyone considering using your services. As I am sure that you are aware, many people may feel skeptical about this type of service on line. I feel as though we have sat side by side at the same desk working on this project. Your relationship with me has been extremely personal, specific, and customized to meet my needs and certainly exceed my expectations. I can't thank you enough.

Michelle, It has been a pleasure to work with you on this project. I will be sure to recommend your services to my associates. I sought out someone like you to be able to put down on paper my experiences and you certainly delivered. It is funny how I could not have put my own life on paper better than someone who has not even met me face to face. Thanks a million.
