Long Term goal..... [#permalink] New post 23 Sep 2013, 13:16
I am confused about my long term gaol. How much detail I should mention in Essay. Would It work or I need to be more specific on this
"As a long term goal, I wish to work for people of India. I feel that India needs strong and visionary IT management institutions, which could bring transformation to the current ways of functioning and deliver its services to the people in an efficient manner. There are two possible paths currently visible to me - I would establish my own firm to lead portfolio of products or I would join public sector to lead some information technology department of India."


Thanks

In short, that is a sure way to get the thumbs down. Your goal is very generic-sounding and language such as "bring transformation to the current ways of functioning and deliver its services to the people in an efficient manner" is something that could be said by thousands of other applicants. You need to work on making your story your very own and yes, details can help. Also you seem to be falling into the typical trap of telling them what you want to do without telling them why, and actually the what is a bit vague to boot. You need to cast a compelling vision which is rooted in your core passions. Only then will the adcoms stand up and notice.
