    Welcome to the forum.

    You can post your motivation letter in this section of the forum and someone will look at it. Make sure you remove any personal details.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    In a globalized business world international competence is becoming increasingly important. Companies expect employees to possess not only a sound knowledge of theories and management techniques, but also complementary skills, languages and intercultural capabilities.

    Re: motivation letter

    This is way too long. If you weren't given any word-count guidelines, you should be aiming for a maximum of 500-600 words. Click the "Edit" button to reduce the size of your motivation letter, and we'll then be glad to help you with it.

    You may have to redraft some of it.

    As teechar said in post #4, you should aim for a total word count of 500-600.
