When an employer taps into the PSG Bio Database for potential applicants, they view professional biographies of active members who have submitted a profile. Writing a profile for the bio database may be an invaluable tool in your job search, so please take a few moments to write your bio then submit it to the PSG Bio committee.
Here are the four simple guidelines:
- Your bio should be 5-7 sentences
- Write your professional summary in the 3rd person (Do not use the word “I”).
- Place the last 6 digits of your PSG ID at the beginning of your bio followed by your desired job title. You can find the last 6 digits of your ID on the white plastic card you received from the One Stop Career Center when you first signed up.
- Email your bio either to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
Following these four easy steps will ensure your bio being posted to the PSG Bio Database.
