Dear Mr. Smith:
As an ambitious, full-time accounting student with an expected graduation date of May 2010, I am seeking to establish myself in a position where my diverse experience, attributes, and strong work ethics will be of value. I have attached my resume to show you how I qualify for a junior accountant position with your organization.
In my current position working within FoodLand Supermarket’s Internal Audit Department, I continue to prove my ability to work well with others in the workplace while demonstrating a comprehensive understanding of general business accounting functions, as they pertain to company-wide business operations for 47 store locations. In fact, supervisors frequently select me for assignments that extend well beyond my core responsibilities based on my work performance and ability to work well with others.
As Co-founder and Chairman of the Eastern Student Alumni Association, I enjoy the opportunity to serve as a mentor, role model, and advocate for multicultural students at various grade levels. In this capacity, I am recognized as a personable, effective leader who strives to instill the importance of education and honest, hard work while empowering youths to achieve their personal and academic goals.
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.
