"alongside" or " accompanied by"

Post by liçesaylüh » Sat May 14, 2016 2:10 pm

Dear all,

I have the following sentences:

- In-depth knowledge of private sector development alongside a keen interest in corporate finance and M&A.
- In-depth knowledge of private sector development accompanied by keen interest in corporate finance and M&A.

Will you please tell me whether alongside and accompanied by are used appropriately in this context? Which one is better? I would also appreciate if you could suggest me some alternatives. I think with is a viable option, but due to its frequent use in the rest of the paragraph, I avoid it.

Thank you in advance! {-:

The simplest conjunction would be ‘and’. ‘Alongside’ or ‘along with’ can do but not ‘accompanied by’.
