- What have you done that goes beyond development? You surely have had to present, defend and build your ideas. How about project management, process definition, and actually implementing it in a team? Show how you’ve demonstrated leadership in your past and current projects.
- Present a high-level picture of your achievements. Go beyond "developing systems" to including "Why was this system built? What role does it play? What's the impact of this system?"
- Avoid using too much technical language. Instead of saying "built a client server front-end module to retrieve HR database records from mainframe," use laymen language that is easier to understand. Include other elements of your project. Did you lead a team? Did you manage or direct others for their tasks?
- Write those numbers: Did your work improve productivity, cause an increase in sales or revenue, impact your company positively? Get those stats in your application. When admission committee members are reading your materials, these numbers will help them to easily quantify your impact.
