RE: Accounting Position

If you are currently seeking a motivated individual to add to your Accounting team, then I ask you to please consider me for the position. As a person who sets goals and works hard to achieve those goals, I believe that I could make a positive contribution to your department. While I do not have practical work experience in the accounting field, I believe that my education plus my willingness to learn and ability to easily obtain new skills, provides me with a good foundation for this role. I was a high achiever in all my accounting courses and have a fairly good understanding of accounting practices.

Please consider what I can offer to your organization:

  1. Good knowledge of accounting practices
  2. Initiative to follow through consistently for optimum accuracy
  3. Excellent organizational skills
  4. Strict attention to detail, ensuring compliance with rules and procedures
  5. Good interpersonal skills, finding it easy to get along well with others
  6. High achiever with ambitious accounting career goals

Realizing that it is not always easy to evaluate a person from a summary statement, I would appreciate the chance to discuss employment with you personally in an interview. I am eager to talk to you about a potential career opportunity with your organization. Given the chance, I am convinced that I could do a good job for you in an accounting role. Thank you for your consideration and I look forward to hearing from you. You may reach me at __(phone #)__ during the day or __(phone #)__ evenings.

Sincerely,

__(your name)__
