Dear Mrs. Vasquez,
I write with much interest in your recent advertisement seeking an Accountant for your firm. I have done much research in the area of leading accounting firms over the past few months, and have found your company the best match for a company that has a solid reputation, history, and solid customer base. This is why I choose to apply for this position today, and I have also included my resume for your consideration.
Briefly, I have a great background in accounting to offer your firm. I began my career by attending Champlain College for a B.S. in Accounting. Once successfully graduated, I went on to work for Bright Horizons as an Accounting Assistant for over three years. I handled all assistance duties and operational needs for an office of nine Accounting professionals. I was then promoted to the role of Accountant for that firm, and joined the other executives in routine accounting of public and private sector auditing. After four years in this role, I moved on to work for Robert Half Finance & Accounting in which I specialized in only municipal accounting, and travelled the state handling all major city and town accounting needs on a yearly basis. I have worked in this position with a high level of accuracy, quick accounting, and proficiency for the past three years.
I know that your firm would be greatly benefited by a candidate such as me, as I have extensive hands on accounting and financial experience, a solid educational background, and outstanding interpersonal skills. If possible, I would love to meet with you in the near future to go over the parameters of this exciting position, and tell you why I might best fill it with my qualifications. Could you please contact me at 111-111-1111 to arrange for an interview? Thanks for your time.
