    suited to something

    Hello, I'd like to know how to use "suit" correctly. For example, I wrote the following sentence. Is it correct?
    You are well suited to all requirements.

    Please correct that sentence if it has any mistakes.
    Please, show me every single one of my mistakes. Thank you.

    One can be well suited for/to a job, position, etc., but not usually requirements.

    Hmm.. Thanks. What about the 2nd attempt?
    You are well suited to that position because you meet all requirements.
    Please, show me every single one of my mistakes. Thank you.

    Re: suited to something

    I would probably say "... all the​ requirements".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
