Give example of paragraph about introducing myself?
For example, if I ever ask a friend to introduce me to one of her professional contacts, I like to type up a short paragraph about myself that she can copy and paste into her . I also try to prepare for a networking conversation with a friend the same way I would for an with a stranger—by coming up with specific, targeted questions—so no one feels like I’m wasting his or her time.
Give example of paragraph about introducing myself
Paula Wright: I was kindly asked to write a bio -- a short paragraph about myself. I've never been good at that. In short, I am an 18-year-old aspiring cabaret headliner. On paper, I am an average student, college bound to become a teacher . . . or a vet technician? The coin hasn't come down on that one yet. At any rate, my name is Paula and these are a few of the pieces I've completed in my four years at BUHS.
SG: I found my job through craigslist. Instead of sending a resume, I wrote a smart-ass paragraph about myself, and included the last 3 books I had read. John Schulman, the owner of Caliban, apparently thought I was an endearing smart-ass, and after an interview he offered me a job as cataloger.And frankly, disclosing to people ... I think I have found the best way for me, personally. I was never really comfortable meeting guys in a bar and trying to have that conversation over loud disco music. So thank God for the Internet. Because now you can go online, and you can post a profile of yourself, with pictures, and you can write a paragraph. So right up there in the first paragraph about myself, I'm going to disclose that I'm HIV positive. And that tends to weed people out. If they can't deal with it, then they're really not going to contact you, and if they're okay with it, then they will.This is happening to me right now! Last Monday, I was contacted by a recruiter through LinkedIn at 9 o’clock at night about an immediate role. I responded straight away to say I was interested. The next morning at 8.30am, she called me to discuss the role and sent me the job description. After reading the job description and doing some research on the company, I called back an hour and a half later to say I was keen. From the tone of the conversation and the fact everything was happening so quickly, it sounded certain that the job would be mine. I just had to send her a paragraph about myself and my suitabilities for the job based on the job description, which I did right away. She said she was just going to check with the manager if it’s ok that I’m on a work visa, and get back to me on it. She really got my hopes up.
