    Sentence Typing Mistakes/Grammar

    Hello,
    My name is Joana and I'm Portuguese.

    Basically, I'm seeking for a new job...and I need to write a cover letter in English (and this is really hard to write even in my native language). I'm new here and I hope someone may be able to offer me some advice.
    The sentence is:

    "During the past two years, I successfully maintain the equipment management in compliance with the regulatory requirements with very rare observations/non-conformities reported in almost weekly audits and inspections. Now I want to go one step further. What motivates me is the perspective of applying and share what I have learned so far and mainly the possibility to try new things and learn from the others."


    Could anyone with some extra time, take a look at this sentence. Just to make sure that I would not send this incorrectly.

    Thanks in advance.

    Joana

    Welcome to the forum.

    See my suggested changes and queries above. Saying "trying new things" is a bit vague. You might want to come up with something more specific.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
