Dear Hiring Manager
I recently saw your job posting for the position of staff accountant at your organization. I have 5 years of experience working in a similar role in a reputed accounting firm and I possess the skills necessary for your company. As a highly trained accounting professional, I am confident my background aligns well with the position you are seeking in a particular role in your organization.
I possess a post-graduation degree in finance and I am adept in document preparation, report creation, and financial analysis. I excel at investigating and resolving discrepancies, performing financial modeling and forecasting, analyzing diverse financial records, and creating reports and presentations to detail results. In addition to my experience and personal qualities, I have a great passion for accounting and I am extremely enthusiastic about joining your organization. You will find me a hard-working team player and have the ability to grasp new systems and remain up to date with knowledge.
In my experience, I became familiar with accounting principles and laws and regulations. My task involved ensuring timely payment of vendor invoices, maintaining files and reports, assisting with the preparation of audit requests. I possess excellent verbal and written skills and the ability to solve issues on billing or shipping. In my current job, I have performed a variety of tasks including forecasting and projection as well as day to day accounting duties. Although I have sharpened my accounting skills for the last few years and learned new processes, what I was been missing is working in a team environment. After viewing your ad online, I was excited to contact you for the role.
I got an opportunity to work as a volunteer at a non-profit organization where I help balance spreadsheets and work with those people in charge of marketing, promotion, and fundraising. I would love an opportunity to meet with you and discuss my skills and attitude than can be surely an asset to your team. Thank you for your consideration.
