Build your ‘uniquely American’ bio just like Carly Fiorina

Sep 25, 2015

Presidential candidate Carly Fiorina likes to talk about how she rose from being a secretary to CEO of Hewlett-Packard (hpq).

And while it's technically true, it's also a bit contrived. Fiorina didn't exactly rise through the ranks. She worked as a temp secretary during her undergrad summers and then at a property brokerage for a while after quitting law school. She never again worked in the property sector, instead moving to Italy and then returning a year later to pursue her MBA.

It would be a bit like saying that I rose from restaurant busboy to senior editor at Fortune. Accurate without being really reflective of my career arc.

But it is a fun exercise, so we're letting you build a bio like Carly Fiorina. Just be sure to take a screenshot. Might come in handy if you someday decide to run for president...

Go here to build your 'uniquely American' bio.
