does this sentence sound right? How could I work it better for a covernote? watch

    • Thread Starter

    im talking about past experience and education, and with relation to a past event I want to say,

    it was vital I developed excellent organising skills to priorities workloads, whilst increasing my ability to work consistently under pressure.

    I dunno if the tense is right?

    Thanks for any help.

    I'd say something to make it more clear that I actually did do those things: something like, "In this role I necessarily developed excellent organisational skills whilst also increasing my ability to work consistently under pressure."

    I think the tense is fine in yours though.

    Personally, I'd say 'organisation/organisational skills' rather than organising.
    But the tense sounded fine.
