Overall this is a good package. The biggest problem with this package is
bullet structure. the first bullet cluster is a super bullet, 5 lines!
Looking at it, maybe it should have been two bullets to highlight each of the
achievements. Some of the other bullets read like sentences. the
biggest clue to this is when you read "that" or "which" in a bullet... It
is time to re-write it. Besides those minor problems a good package.
