To whom it may concern:
This letter is to express my interest in the Staff Account
position posted on website. I believe my experience and knowledge coupled with
my Bachelor's degree in accounting qualifies and makes me a good fit and asset
to the team. My most recent salary was at $62,000 but my salary requirements
are open and negotiabl. Resume is for your consideration.
During my years of experience as a Staff Accountant, I have
been involved in assisting with the preparation of monthly financial statements
from analyzing and processing journal entries to balance sheet and accounts
receivable reconciliations and to several expense account analysis. I have
utilized my analytical and communication skills to effectively resolve
accounting issues and meet financial objectives.
During my career, I have developed excellent interpersonal
skills by working with many different departments and different levels of
management on discrepancies and resolving them as quickly as possible. My main
objective is to use my knowledge and experience in accounting to help reach
company goals while at the same time be able to grow both personally and
professionally. I am a very organized, detail oriented, dependable, quick
learner and motivated worker who can work as an individual and as a team.
I am certain my accounting experience would make a smooth
transition to the Staff Accountant position and to the continued success of the
company. I look forward to the opportunity to speak with you soon to discuss my
qualifications in further detail.
