Quick, Simple Steps to Writing a Profile Article

By January 4, 2010

Follow me on:

Writing articles based on interviews can be intimidating. How to distill all that conversation into 500-1500 words? Not easy! However, I have developed a method over the years that has served me well. (And by "well" I mean that it gets me to a rough draft in a short period of time and tends to please my editor, too). Please read How To Write a Profile Article, and leave your tips in the comments!

As a professional resume writer, my mission is to interview clients to get the information I and the employer want, not what they think they should tell me. If that process is done correctly, writing briefly is no longer difficult.
