Hey guys got a question, should I use a comma or not after the word structure

"My role has been to curate content and design workflow, functionality, and structure in addition to organizing the developers via weekly conferences, setting goals, and overseeing progress."

And similarly here after the word relations?

"By managing and developing my businesses I have attained a commitment to designing and supporting positive work environments, expertise in strategic planning, teamwork, and customer relations as well as strong analytical, writing, and verbal skills for communicating with a broad and diverse audience from countries all around the world, particularly India and Russia."

Thanks

@musashi,
Yes after structure.

No after relations.

I hasten to add that commas seem to be dying out, yet their purpose of helping people to speak what is written and also to better understand meaning is probably more in demand in the English language now than ever before.

IMO - these sentences are way TOO long.

I suggest;

"My role has been to curate content and design workflow, functionality and structure, in addition to organizing developers. This was accomplished by weekly conferences, setting goals and overseeing progress."


"By managing and developing my businesses I am committed to supporting positive work environments, designing strategic planning, encouraging teamwork and maintaining customer relations. I have strong analytical, writing and verbal skills for communicating with a broad and diverse audience from countries all around the world, particularly India and Russia."

Yea Ionus I've noted that too

Yes in spades. Often the trend away from the comma creates an almost unintelligible sentence
