So it doesn't matter which way I do it?

In both versions of my resume, I give descriptions of what I did and what I
used to do it. In the old one, they're in a series of simple declaratives.
I've got them clumped like a paragraph, even though they're not quite
complete sentences, I think: e.g., "Using RoboHTML, converted from WinHelp
to HTML Help, reformatted, and indexed reference materials for internal use
by consultant pharmacists. Using RoboHELP, developed WinHelp for ConsultWare
2000, a Visual FoxPro application used by consultant pharmacists in the
field." There's too much to do as bullet points; the resume would be six
pages long, and this way I keep it to two.

Would you recommend I rephrase statements like these so they're complete
sentences?
