Fill-In-The-Blank Bio Templates to Write Your Personal or Professional Bio

Copyright (c) 2008-2014

It's not hard to write a personal or professional bio when you use the fill-in-the-blank bio templates provided in this article. All you have to do is choose one or two sentences from each of the four categories and add your details. The result will be a first-rate personal or professional bio.

To structure your bio, choose one or two sentences from each of the four categories below.

1) who you are 2) what your expertise is (credentials and experience) 3) why the reader should care about your expertise 4) how the reader can contact you

I've organized the bio sentence templates below into the four "who, what, why, and how" categories. Choose one or two sentences from each category, fill in the blanks, and you'll be done!



Bio Category #1: WHO you are (choose one or two sentences)

  • NAME is a _________ (your job title) with ___________ (company name). In this role, NAME looks after/coordinates/manages/leads a team providing (choose one of the foregoing) all aspects of _______, including _____, _____ and ______.

  • A big believer in ______, NAME supports _______.

  • NAME is a qualified __________ (your professional designation, e.g. electrician, property appraiser, esthetician) and holds the _________ degree/certification (choose one) from ______ (name of educational institution). (Note: some people prefer to put the education part at the end of the professional bio, just prior to the contact information.)



  • Bio Category #2: WHAT your expertise is (choose one or two sentences)

  • NAME is no stranger to ________ (your industry or type of work), having spent ___ years as a ________ and a __________ (occupations: e.g. fitness instructor, computer programmer, entrepreneur, professional dancer, corporate executive), which taught her/him the importance of ____________.

  • NAME has more than ____ years of ______ experience in _______.

  • In this role, NAME was responsible for ______, ______ and ____.





  • Bio Category #3: WHY the reader should care about your expertise (choose one or two sentences)

  • NAME helps _________ (your target clients) to ___________ (a problem or goal your target clients have).

  • NAME offers a wide range of programs and services - from ___________, to __________ and __________ (your services)

If there's something that you think is interesting or important to add, by all means do so! Trust your own judgment and let your personal or professional bio reflect what is unique about you.
