    No, it isn't, because you haven't written it to be. You've written is as a dot point, omitting articles etc. That is fine in the right place, but you are asking if it's grammatical.

    Here is a correct sentence:
    My objective is to work efficiently to apply the skills and knowledge that I have acquired throughout my education and practical experience. I hope to do this in a challenging job and to benefit my employer and, in return, to gain job satisfaction by utilizing my communication and problem solving skills.

    Here is a correct dot point:
    Working efficiently to apply skills and knowledge acquired throughout my education and practical experience in a challenging job; to benefit my employer and in return to gain job satisfaction by utilizing my communication and problem solving skills.

    "Dot point" is a new one on me; here (UK) we say 'bullet point' (which some people decry as 'an Americanism'). But there's no other word for it - it's just that the use of bullet points was associated with US management practice. Thanks Raymott.

    Well "dot point" may be a regionalism - or even an idiosyncratic usage by my former university tutors. But, as you say, you have to call it something.
