Suggestions for Producing an Effective Biography:
- Do not write in the first person (i.e., I worked at ...). When necessary, it is best to use terms like, he (or she), or Dr. Smith, was on the staff...
- Do not make references to the present time (i.e. Dr. Smith is currently a professor at.....). Although the biography can be updated later, it should be written so that it does not appear to be dated (or outdated) when it is read in the future.
