Peer Review & Submission of Professional Bios published on

This is the post for the week of September 11, 2017.

Note for This Week

  • Assignment change. I accidentally scheduled an assignment on the Friday of Fall Break. As a result, I have canceled the October 13 Labor Log. The October 20 Labor Log will cover both weeks, from October 7 through October 20.

Readings for This Week

Tasks for This Week

Here’s what you need to do for this week:

  1. Review the resources that can help you improve your Professional Bio:
    1. The advice articles
    2. The examples
    3. The LinkedIn Summary article. Your professional bio, with light revision, can frequently do double duty as the summary for your LinkedIn profile.
    4. The Word Choice in the Job Search infographic. These same tips apply to your bio.
  2. Finish the draft of your Professional Bio, using the examples and advice on the assignment as well as the readings (above) on this post.
  3. By 11:59PM on Wed, September 13, post a rough draft of your bio to your Writing Group in Canvas in the Group Feedback on Professional Bios Discussion. Additional instructions are in the Discussion.
  4. By 11:59PM on Fri, September 15, post feedback in Canvas to all your group members in the Group Feedback on Professional Bios Discussion. Remember to provide constructive feedback, following the advice on the Writing Groups page and the information in the #WeekendWatch video, Peer Review: Commenting Strategies. Additional instructions are in the Discussion.
  5. By 11:59PM on Friday, September 15, write your 09/15 Labor Log in Canvas. The grace period for your log entry ends at 11:59 PM on Monday, September 18.
