I was just asked to write a bio of myself for our new company website. WTF? Really people, there is nothing noteworthy to write about me. I am a college student. I get drunk with my friends. I haven't gone to any finance academies over the summer or played college sports. I don't have my masters yet (obvi) and honestly don't know if I ever will. I lead a boring life...what in the world am I supposed to write about!?! I can't say what I want to because it is totally not appropriate for the workplace. This blows.

This leads me to believe that I should probably be doing more exciting things with my life. Where do I start?

Well, one thing you could say about yourself is that you have a great sense of humor! Seriously, though, I think most people find it very difficult to write about themselves. I have a website called www.howtowritebio.com that has fill-in-the-blank templates for various types of professional bios. Your readers might find it helpful.
