    Re: Motivation Letter

    Why are you addressing this letter "To whom it may concern"? Do you not know who it is going to?

    Re: Motivation Letter

    Yes, I do not know who it is going to. Maybe I could write ''Dear Sir or Madam'' instead of it?

    Thank you for your answer.

    Re: Motivation Letter

    To make it more personal, I might contact the company direct and ask for the name of the person to whom job applications should be directed. It shows some initiative on your part.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Motivation Letter

    What's the application deadline? Do you have time to act upon emsr2d2's suggestion? Also, the letter is a bit short; were you given any guidelines (word count, topics to cover)?

    Re: Motivation Letter

    Thanks for your attention. I can start the letter with ''Dear David''. I had taken a course called ''Business English'' at university. It was my guidelines.

    This is the last version of the letter.

    '' Dear David,

    I hereby make my application for the advertised opportunity " New Graduate". I am a student in my final year, graduating in July 2019. I believe with my educational background in Mechanical Engineering from Karadeniz Technical University and career goals I am of great benefit to your company given the opportunity.

    At university, I have focused on automotive engineering and started to create a strong theoretical background. The course of internal combustion engines that I took my third year has made me more eager to work at this field. I am also interested in electrical vehicles and have been broadening my horizon by following related courses on Edx and Coursera which are online platforms offering courses in many areas.

    I have done my internships in the sector and I eagerly aspire to work in the automotive sector in the future. I completed my summer internships at Delphi Diesel Systems, Nemak Automotive and Ford Otosan.
