    They're not sentences.

    There's a difference between a CV and résumé. Be sure you're using the right word.

    You should only use professional language if you're writing your CV for one particular profession. If you are, then you should only use the language of that profession, not any other. Examples:

    - I worked for three years in the cardio-pulminary unit of Johns Hopkins Hospital.

    - I served as gardian
    ad litum for the law firm of Lamprey, Conger & Neil.

    Rewarded
    in that context would mean paid or compensated. That wouldn't help most CVs. Use a different word. Honored is good.

    You don't have to say "for two years in a row." 2015 and 2016 are obviously consecutive.

    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
