Can I start a sentence with the word 'After'? I cant find a list of words not to use at the begining of a sentence and im not sure if after sounds correct.
e.g. After graduating from university with a first class honours degree in 2004, I began my career managing scientific research projects.
That is totally fine.
You are not supposed to start a sentence with and, but, or, nor in formal writing.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
