Mrs. Riley,

I obtained your contact information the Sam & Associates LLP job posting on LinkedIn and I wanted to express my interest in the Staff Accountant position. I received my Bachelor’s degree in Accounting with a minor in Business this past April from the University of Michigan. I graduated with honors and qualify to take the CPA exam with my 150 undergraduate credit hours.

I have two years of accounting experience acquired through my internship with Grant Thornton LLP where I used my analytical skills to improve cost saving strategies within the company; saving them thousands of dollars over the course of the year. My experience at Grant Thornton has developed my communication skills and has proven my ability to be a quick-learner and adaptor when placed in a fast-paced work environment.

I am confident that the combination of my work experience and educational background has adequately prepared me for making a strong contribution to Sam & Associates LLP. My prior internship experience has shown me the value of professionalism and has equipped me with the knowledge and work ethic required for long-term success in the field.

Please call me at (345)123-5555 or e-mail me at JoeSirenity@googlemail.com to arrange a convenient time to further discuss my background in relation to the company’s needs. Thank you for your time and consideration, I look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,

Mr. James Crowley
Finance Manager
Acme Inc.
555 W. Applegarth Blvd.
Anytown, TX 75000

Dear Mr. Crowley:

Two of your former interns, Brian Hodges and Martha Smith, suggested I contact you regarding finance internship opportunities. They are familiar with my background and felt I would be an excellent match for your summer internship program.

Currently a junior majoring in finance at UNT, I have demonstrated strong academic performance in all finance courses, maintaining a 3.5 GPA in my major. The courses I have completed have given me a solid foundation in the tools, processes and methodologies involved in the successful analysis and management of portfolio-investment strategies. I have a proven ability to learn challenging concepts quickly and have developed competencies in diverse areas, including:

 

 

  • Industry research/information sourcing
  • Comparative analysis
  • Quantitative analysis
  • Pro forma analysis
  • Cash-flow analysis
  • Financial modeling and asset valuation
  • Portfolio and asset management
  • Insurance plans and mutual funds
  • Retirement and estate planning
  • Tax planning and investment strategies

In addition to my analytical strengths, I bring to the table advanced computer skills (with cross-platform exerptise in Windows and Mac); expertise in the MS Office suite of products; and familiarity with programming languages including SQL, HTML and VB.

Since starting college, I have worked part-time (summers/holidays/evenings) as a clerk at Wal-Mart. In this position, I have earned a reputation for consistently exceeding company and customer expectations. Wal-Mart's store manager has asked me to return this summer, but I yearn to gain corporate finance experience. I am impressed by Acme's innovation and success, and I would very much like to be part of such a winning company.

The enclosed resume provides more details of my skills and achievement track record. If you agree that I would make a valuable addition to your team, please feel free to call me at (555) 555-5555 or email me at pamela@somedomain.com. I know you are busy, so thank you for your time, and I look forward to speaking with you.

Sincerely,



Pamela Jung
