Over the period, it can be observed that there was a significant surge in the percentage of the population that owned a computer.
In the year 2002, only about 58% of the population owned a computer, whereas by 2010, this gradually increased to where over three-quarters of individuals had a home computer.correspond to higher levels of computer ownership in both of those years.
(I don't see a lot of school applications these days, but I see a lot of cover letters and I've never, ever seen a diagram in one.) Based on what I've said thus far, you should be very, very reluctant to use diagrams in cover letters and school applications.
But that doesn't mean (maybe you're applying for a design or marketing position), then you could consider adding diagrams anyway.
research papers), but never seen them in formal selling idea works (e.g. I want to know if adding them in any formal writing is good or not.
For example, when talking in a cover letter about how relevant the field I study and the skills the job require, I think using this Venn diagram is effective (imagine this is drawn by a program): And now, in the personal statement I will use to apply to a grad school, when I talking about how I work smart, not work hard, it is best to illustrating the point with this: Let alone the space they require, what do you think?If you haven't considered how your audience will respond to the graphics... There are a few relevant factors: I see plenty of formal writing that includes diagrams -- technical flow diagrams, trend graphs, timelines, resource-allocation charts, and more.The main question you should be asking yourself is: does this diagram add value?It has the be presented in such a way that anyone looking at it will understand why it was included and subsequently agree with your decision.This is a difficult litmus test, but an important one because once you send out your written material you have no control over who looks at it and what mood or state they're in.Does it make my point more clearly, compactly, or persuasively than words would? (I don't think your proposed diagrams add value, though.More on this later.) If you're writing an analysis piece on recent elections for the press (for example), charts showing voter breakdowns in the sectors or demographics you're talking about are probably normal, maybe even expected.But, this is often a very poor assumption and people can be reticent to change or too tired or distracted.So, if you're going to force a change, then what you present has to compensate for the irritation engendered when the reviewer has to now accommodate your new rules of the cover letter or application. Lastly, and along the lines of the logic above, your graphic has to undoubtedly prove or forward your goals.Your diagrams don't convey meaningful information; you seem to want to use them as decorations.The second one supplements what will presumably be text explaining you work smart (so the diagram doesn't add anything); the first one is actually a bit of a mystery to me and I can't tell what point you're trying to make, but even if I could, you'd probably be better off making that point in words like other cover letters do.
