Subject: Application for position of Accounting Assistant
Dear Ms. Himes,
I am submitting this letter in interest of the position of Accounting Assistant as advertised. I believe I can offer the accounting assistant skills necessary to benefit and further the aims and interests of Continental Enterprises.
To summarize the value I can bring to your organization, I have:
• In excess of 10 years of experience in processing invoices, expense forms and payment requests, and accurately verifying calculations and input codes into company accounts systems.
• Experience ensuring that receiving purchase orders and invoices always match, reconciling bank statements and department records, and compiling routine numerical information to be used for reports, both by hand and by running report software on company computer records.
• Experience in performing various clerical duties, including mail sorting, record filing and report typing, as well as operating general office equipment of various kinds.
• An adaptable and flexible nature attained through working in situations of a demanding, mission-critical nature where overall success and financial stability are the only acceptable outcome.
I believe in building strong relationships with team members and fellow workers, whether equals or superiors. I have no doubt that my positive, team-centered attitude, coupled with my constant drive to produce solid results, will provide a constructive advantage to Continental Enterprises.
I feel sure that a meeting would be in both our interests and I would appreciate the opportunity to discuss how my experience and qualification as an Accounting Assistant can contribute to Continental Enterprises. Please contact me at (333)-462-1698, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
