    Please edit my letter:



    Dear Mrs Brown

    I am writing in response to your advertisement on hiring employees in the last issue of The NEWS.I'd like to ask a few questions if you dont mind.

    I would be grateful if you could introduce to me the new qualifications in your company .I'd like to know about a list of main jobs .
    I wondered if it possible for someone to have a single office.


    I look forward to hearing from you
    Yours sincearly

    1 The first thing you should do is to make sure the full stops and spaces are in the right places: first a stop after the last word, then a space.
    2 You don't need to add "if you don't mind."

    Dear Sir/Madam:
    or
    To Whom It May Concern:

    Yours truly,
    Name, position, or Educational forms such as PhD, Dr. etc.
    or
    Sincerely yours,
    Name, position or Educational forms such as PhD, Dr. etc.

    Both ways are acceptable.
