Subject: Application for position of Accounting Manager
Dear Ms. Gonzalez,
I am submitting this letter in interest of the position of Accounting Manager as advertised. I believe I can offer the financial reporting and statement skills necessary to benefit and further the aims and interests of Bed Bath & Beyond.
To summarize the value I can bring to your organization, I have:
• In excess of 7 years of experience in accounting management roles spent supervising accounting staff while managing resources of assigned areas in a variety of locations.
• Experience in supervising the activities of lower level accounting staff. I exercise a personal and supportive approach to encourage enhanced performance at both the individual and team levels.
• Experience in directing the preparation of statistical accounting reports, undertaking surveys and analysis of financial information on behalf of management, and providing both internal and external training on the practices and procedures to do with accounting systems.
• An adaptable and flexible nature attained through working in situations of a demanding, mission-critical nature where the overall success of the team, as well as each individual, is the desired 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 Bed Bath & Beyond.
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 Manager can contribute to Bed Bath & Beyond. Please contact me at (666)-841-973, or email me at email@example.com.
