    Default Biographical sketch?

    Anyone ever had to do a biographical sketch for the background investigation? We were given a 1 page paper to write on, and I am not exactly sure what to include. We were told this sketch would be read by the board, just before we enter for our oral boards. I have been practicing for my oral boards, and I am afraid to give away all of my good material on this "sketch".

    Just make it basically an outline of what you're gonna talk about. What you've done since high school, family, things that led you to that point etc.

    Hit the high points.

    You could use your resume to form an outlinf of what you wanted to speak about.

    Thanks for the pointers, I think I got it squared away. Its pretty hard to fit your life on a one page piece of paper!
