I want to avoid the repetition of working in this phrase:

I feel great working with this technology, and working on challenging projects.

Is the following correct?

I feel great working with this technology, as well on challenging projects.

as well as on is the phrase you want.

But the sentence would be better if you reversed the order of the clauses, putting the more general idea first.

I enjoy working on challenging projects, and it is great to work with this technology.

I changed "feel great" to "enjoy" because "I feel great" and, to a lesser extent, the one I suggested, "it is great to....", are informal, and your context suggested a letter to a business. One would not expect to find "I feel great" in a letter responding to an open job position, but that could be a generational thing. I could be a dinosaur.

    I agree that "I feel great working with" is not the tone I would generally use on a resume or such. On the other hand, if I was hiring someone, I can't imagine that I'd reject an applicant for using such informal phrases.

  • It would depend on the job. If the job entailed frequent communication with managers and persons of influence within a large organization, it would be important to understand "tone of voice" when writing, and I might reject the applicant. If it was for a junior programming position in a department where open pizza boxes and half-finished cans of Jolt Cola on the conference room table were a frequent sight, it would not faze me in the least :-) Oct 7 '14 at 16:02

elhoucine, Apart from the sentence construction, you should not use a comma before 'and' nor 'as'. The comma implies a pause but the 'and' and 'as' are already implied such, so skip the commas

  • You need to cite something to support this. As a native speaker of AusE, I would certainly place a comma before some and- and as-initial clauses. Pauses are a feature of spoken language, not written language.
