    Grammar for describing my last position on my resume

    I described my last position in 4 points. One of the points is:


    • Created SQL queries for getting valuable statistical information.


    Is the grammar ok here?

    Change "for getting" to "to obtain". I probably wouldn't bother with "valuable". I don't think most people think you would gather statistical information if it wasn't worth it.

    Note that you can write "okay" or "OK" but not "ok".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Or just delete "getting".

    How about saying something factual about the queries, which might be more impressive to someone than the adjectives?

    Created SQL queries to collect data on xxxx.
