Statement of purpose, 2 full pages
Statement of purpose, 2 full pages.
Write a statement (including but not limited to statement of purpose/personal statement/artist’s statement) of 2 full pages aimed at a particular audience. The statement should, however, be adaptable to other audiences and other uses (i.e. not too specific). For example, you may choose a sample essay question from a graduate school application to respond to, while considering how this information may be reformatted for other media or other questions.
A strong introduction and conclusion should engage the reader’s interests clearly and directly. Include specific details that are demonstrations of your expertise (what skills did you bring and develop in the examples), but do not merely summarize work or course experience. You may want to refer to your in-section “what I learned…” exercise for possible ideas to develop. Create a linear narrative that leads your reader from where you are now, to what you want to add to their company/graduate program/artistic community/etc. Identify a mutually beneficial relationship between your what you can do for them, and how they will help you achieve your goals.
