Hello,

I'm not sure if the following is structured quite right:

This focus has greatly promoted my software development skills, especially my ability to develop algorithms and debug code.

Is the usage of the comma correct in this situation?


Thank you for your time and efforts in answering this question.

Sincerely,

Matt

Looks right to me. Soon find out if I'm right or not.

The comma is necessary.

The sentence will make a better impression, however, if it doesn't look so trendy. Too much "me" in it, and is promotion really what happens to skills?

Yes, I agree. I'm trying to work out something else that will sound better. Thank you for the advice.
