Is it grammatically correct to use 'In the present job' in this context?

In the present job, I carry out the regeneration and production of machinery parts in the food sector.

    This is OT proofreading, but I will add that “regeneration” does not seem like the right word here. Jul 24, 2014 at 13:25
  • He may not have written this. He may simply have read it somewhere and it called his knowledge of English into question. It's a valid question and it merits an answer.

  • The specific source of concern was identified twice to be the phrase "in the present job." Compare umteen questions about in the park vs at the park or In a job, at a job.

It isn't incorrect, but it sounds extremely awkward. Normally we use possessive adjectives with "job" :

In my present job, I carry out...


I think it is better to use current instead of present
