  1. 1

    Create a captivating narrative that uses descriptive phrasing and vivid adjectives to relate a general outline of your background, interests and achievements. Carefully consider important milestones and eliminate extraneous details. For example, include your educational background, the industry you work in, and any recent awards or achievements.

  2. 2

    Distinguish areas of your life by category of topic. Use the outline to plot key areas of your life along a sequential stream or line. For example, divide each topic into three additional subtopics. When listing employment, include promotions and goals.

  3. 3

    Present short sentence snapshots of who you are. Your outline should include short, concise sentences that are quick to read. Use these snapshots to cover areas like pet peeves, personality, family life, religious beliefs and favourites things.

  4. 4

    Use effective adjectives like "Pragmatic," instead of "careful." Also, lean toward the positive but be honest and accurate in your descriptions.

  5. 5

    Market yourself clear terms. Are you generally funny, adventurous, shy? Don't clutter the outline with too many descriptions or use adjectives that conflict one another. For example, avoid saying, "I love being spontaneous even though it sends me into a panic."
