6 of the Best Professional Bio Examples We've Ever Seen

6 of the Best Professional Bio Examples We've Ever Seen | Public Relations & Social Marketing Insight | Scoop.it

A short, professional bio is one of those things most people don't think about until, all of a sudden, we've been asked to "shoot one over via email" and have approximately one afternoon to come up with it.


That's when we scramble.


And when we scramble, our bio ends up reading like this:


Rodney Erickson is a content marketing professional at HubSpot, an inbound marketing and sales platform that helps companies attract visitors, convert leads, and close customers. Previously, Rodney worked as a marketing manager for a tech software startup. He graduated with honors from Columbia University with a dual degree in Business Administration and Creative Writing."...


Woof, that was dull. Are you still with me? I swear, not even adding a tidbit about his cats would liven that bio up....

16 ultra-creative CVs / interactive résumés that catch the eye

16 ultra-creative CVs / interactive résumés that catch the eye | Public Relations & Social Marketing Insight | Scoop.it

Pretty much everybody has created a CV / résumé at some stage in their life. As with most forms of content I think the key is to establish a tone of voice, and try to stand out from the surrounding noise.


I always used to put ‘vinyl junkie’ in the ‘interests’ section on my CV, which always worked a treat in interviews regardless of the role. People would ask me about my passion for music. I’d return the serve by asking the interviewer the same thing. These things can help to break any ice, and I think you should habitually ask plenty of questions in interviews, for all sorts of reasons.


Nowadays there are more opportunities than ever to attract the right kind of attention, and creative professionals in particular can go the extra mile to make an impression. I thought I’d collect a bunch of examples, which may inspire you to do something different...

Mother Nature Doesn't Do Bailouts

Mother Nature Doesn't Do Bailouts | Public Relations & Social Marketing Insight | Scoop.it

You don't have the luxury of ignoring climate change. Just because Congress — and global climate summits — can't seem to prepare for climate change, doesn't mean the private sector can get away with the same. Mother Nature doesn't do bailouts. The danger signs are clear.

 

Yet for years, climate change has been off limits for federal policymakers, who have been rendered nearly catatonic over the unproven idea that dealing with climate change or any environmental problem would be too costly for a delicate economy. On the contrary, tackling climate change is an investment that pays off economically as well as socially.

 

A report from Deutsche Bank showed in 2010 that a portfolio with an overweight to climate solutions would have outperformed a benchmark portfolio over the previous 5 years, indicating that climate as an investment was "not merely an investment sector that may hold future promise; it is a sector that has already delivered and is continuing to deliver."

 

Moreover, not fixing the problem is quite likely to cost considerably more than addressing it. Particularly now, while there is still time for us to avert even greater damage. Companies that emit a lot of greenhouse gases should know that at some point the burgeoning impacts of climate change will prompt government to act, either at the federal or state level, or both.

 

This leaves business leaders with two options: wait for whatever the government does and react, or pro-actively plan for a carbon-constrained future....
