How to enumerate activities I did

I’m writing a CV and in one section I’d like to enumerate the activities I did. Should I write

  • I proved …
  • I participated …
  • I mentored …

or

  • Proved …
  • Participated …
  • Mentored …

or

  • Prove …
  • Participate …
  • Mentor …

or any other better form for the verbs?

Answer

The second style is most common in CVs.

While English does not typically allow pronoun dropping, CVs are a special case, since “I” is implied everywhere. Therefore, most CVs omit “I” from every sentence.

The third style is inappropriate, as it looks like either present tense or an imperative.
