Who Else Wants To Know How To Find Great Profile Essay Samples?

The most common type of profile essay has two functions: the writing of the profile and interviewing the person. This is essentially a short biographical sketch giving a sense of the person’s life, behavior, accomplishments and appearance. To write a good profile, you need to choose an interesting person to interview, as well as focusing on something about them that’s interesting or unusual. Focus on the uniqueness of this person or something awesome about her life that readers would want to know about.

Finding samples on personal profile essays

Before finding a sample, you need to know what makes a good profile paper. You can’t judge the quality of the example unless you know what you’re looking for. Use the following list to compare samples you find and figure out if you want to use them or not.

  1. Is the person you’re thinking about interviewing somewhat famous? You might be able to find another interview they’ve done before and compare the sample to that. Most of the time though, you’ll likely be interviewing a friend or family member for school and you’ll just have to find a sample with a person who does the same sport or has the same job, because there won’t be an interview on them online already.
  2. Good profile essays includes questions and statements that make you think, make you want to read on. If you find yourself intrigued by the sample you’re reading, that’s a good sign.
  3. How long is the sample? It’s a good idea to find one that’s in the word count range of the one you have to write. It wouldn’t be much use to you to have a 200 word sample when yours needs to be 1000 words long.
  4. What does the conclusion look like? This is an important part of the profile because it summarizes in a different way, the body of the essay and gives the reader the “meat” of the subject. If the conclusion in your sample is engaging, it’s likely the rest of the paper is written just as well.

There you have some of the ways you can find a good sample and use it to write your own profile paper. When you’re working, focus on the interviewee and what he or she would feel about each situation or event you’re describing. This makes it more personal.
