# minipage, bullet, left margin, align with top line

I am using minipage. and make bullet in the minipage. and the text next to the bullet is long and it becomes several lines

however, the second line does not aligned with the first line that next to the bullet

this is my code. I need help

\begin{minipage}{\textwidth}
\begin{minipage}[t]{.7\textwidth}
{\bf Text not that long} \\
\end{minipage}
\begin{minipage}{.29\textwidth}
\hfill {\bf MM. YY-}\\ \hspace*{0.83in}{\bf MM. YY}
\end{minipage}
\begin{minipage}[t]{.7\textwidth}
$\bullet$ \it Text very long, Text very long, Text very long, Text very long, Text very long, Text very long, Text very long, \\
\end{minipage}
\end{minipage}

• I don't really understand what the result should look like, but if I understand the bit with the alignment you should use the itemize environment instead of putting the \bullet by hand. May 2 '18 at 15:49
• Welcome to TeX SX! Unrelated, but note \bf has been deprecated for, 25 years or so. Use \bfseries instead. May 2 '18 at 16:33

This does exactly the same as your code above but using a tabular instead of minipages.

\documentclass[12pt,a4paper]{article}
\setlength{\parindent}{0pt}
\usepackage{enumitem,array}
\begin{document}

\begin{tabular}{@{}p{.7\linewidth} @{} >{\raggedleft\bfseries\arraybackslash}p{.3\linewidth}@{}}
\textbf{Text not that long} & MM. YY-\par MM. YY \\
\begin{itemize}[topsep=0pt,partopsep=0pt,itemsep=0pt,leftmargin=*]
\item \textit{Text very long, Text very long, Text very long, Text very long, Text very long, Text very long, Text very long,}
\item \textit{Text very long, Text very long, Text very long, Text very long, Text very long, Text very long, Text very long,}
\end{itemize} & \\
\end{tabular}

\end{document}
