    Progressive

    Hi, I was wondering whether this sentence is correct or not:

    "Professionally, I am highly qualified, having held several management positions during my career."

    I am concerned about using the progressive "having" in that way.

    Thank you.

    Re: Progressive

    Your sentence is fine.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Progressive

    It's a participle construction, not a progressive.
