Update Your Bio


If you haven’t looked at your bio on professional networking and social media platforms lately, then today’s the day to make sure that you are presenting yourself and your brand in the best way possible. Our JFCS Career Counselors have some great advice. Read below, and then take a few minutes to make some edits – you never know where it will lead! 

When building and communicating your branded bio, consider the following questions: 

  • What sets you apart? What makes you different and what key areas differentiate you and what you do? 
  • What is your promise of value? What value do you bring to those who work with you, around you, or potentially hire you? 
  • What do you do and how do you do it? (This is what makes your promise of value come alive!) 

By asking and answering these questions, you can help craft your bio and communicate your personal brand in a consistent way. If you need more assistance in updating your bio or translating that brand into a resume that will get noticed by recruiters, contact JFCS Career Services today at services@jfcslouisville.org.
