I have just started my first job in a company as an engineer, I was asked to write a brief description of myself which will be sent to all the staffs. Could you please provide some template? how we can write an interesting autobiography?

edited: Having said that some humor or random facts can be included in this bio.

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:

  • "The answer to this question strongly depends on individual factors such as a certain person’s preferences, a given institution’s regulations, the exact contents of your work or your personal values.

If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

  • Is that a challenge get "interesting" and "engineer" in the same sentence? – Solar Mike Aug 15 at 15:26

I would recommend asking whoever is asking you to do this for a past example. Different institutions have vastly different styles -- e.g. some places might be OK with including some humor or random facts in your bio, whereas other places are all business.

That said, you can always get some generic examples by googling "bio examples".

(Also, since this is a workplace question, it's probably more appropriate for https://workplace.stackexchange.com.)


I would recommand to make it short with only a few sentences. You should mention relevant academic steps and/or relevant experiences. You can also add achievements, random facts, humor and hobbies. The style should reflect your personality or how you want to be percieved by the other staffs. A good example should be provided by the top executives of your company and the information should be available on the website of the company and could be used as a template. I agree with ekl that considering the culture of the workplace/company is important for the style/format of the description.
