I have a question about how to combine the use of the word during with a verb in the present perfect tense. The sentence is:

During this period, I have successfully spotted trends, patterns and hidden insights by exploring data sets of any size.

By using During this period I specify that I mean my current work experience, which is ongoing.

Is my sentence grammatically correct?

If not, then would replacing During this period with, for instance, In my current role make the sentence correct?

    Since you are speaking now and up to the present time, it's fine.

  • Thank you for your answer. Would In my current role and In the last two years be okay too?

  • You might try In my ongoing work I have successfully ... or For the past 2 years my ongoing work has successfully included spotting ... Commented Aug 20, 2022 at 16:39
  • Is work sufficient or is work experience conceptually better?

    During this period, in my current role, and in the last two years are all perfectly fine. I don't know why people propose alternatives when you're asking whether your own proposals are correct and, in fact, they are.
