    The reason is that they aren't complete sentences because the verbs have no subjects- you don't say 'I gained valuable experience', etc. However, in a resume the style you are usig is frequently used. The grammar check is only an approximate guide- just because it highlights something, it doesn't necessarily mean that there is an error.
