COVER LETTER – ACCOUNTING MANAGER
Mr. John Smith
1234 E. Main Street
Any Town, US 55555
Dear Mr. Smith:
I am very interested in joining an organization such as (name the organization). During my online research, I was excited to learn about the current opening for an accounting manager. I feel my qualifications are a good fit. For your review, I have attached my resume for your consideration.
I offer a recent Master’s degree in Accounting and eight years of experience managing broad aspects of the accounting function for national vendor with multiple office locations. Although my tenure has been with one employer, you will note my rapid progression with the company into positions. As such, my skill sets are both varied and specialized.
In my current position as Accounting Manager for Kaboodle Doodle, one of the nation’s premier children’s entertainment centers, I am responsible for general office administration and the monthly reconciling of several hundred commercial bank accounts and coordinating challenging collections activities.
To date, my strong work ethic and ability to supervise a departmental staff of 9 accounting clerks has contributed to significantly improving workflow efficiencies, internal auditing procedures, and monthly reporting activities.
I am highly detail oriented, analytical and organized with exceptional time management, problem solving and research skills. Furthermore, I am diligent and patient with a professional demeanor and articulate communication style, and am able to cross-train employees in computerized accounting systems.
Please note that my position is secure and the offer for me to relocate to the mid west is on the table for another month if I wish to accept. However, due to family reasons I am not in a position to do so and have made a decision to find a new “home”.
If you feel there is a mutual interest, I would welcome the opportunity to meet with you to learn more about your company, the requirements of the position, and how my qualifications would be a good fit.
Thank you in advance for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
