    Grammatical Error

    Hello,

    I am in the process of typing up my CV using microsoft word, however, the following sentence keeps getting flagged for grammatical errors and it is starting to annoy me.

    " A self-motivated and conscientious IT Consultant, with considerable experience in developing enterprise applications for the retail, banking and logistic industries."

    Would somebody be so kind as to correct my error?

    Thank You

    Your sentence has no verb.
    Sometimes, while using microsoft word you might have sentences flagged for grammatical errors and in reality there is no such an error in your sentence because you might be only using the passive voice or presenting certain pieces of information on the form of notes as it is the case with writing a CV.
    Name: XY
    Surname: AB
    Degrees: ......
    Training: ........
    Qualifications: A self-motivated and conscientious IT Consultant, with considerable experience in developing enterprise applications for the retail, banking and logistic industries.

    In such a case your sentence is correct and you need only to ignore the flag.
