My name is William, and I currently work as an accountant at [Current Employer] in Philadelphia. It’s a fun job that I enjoy doing, but when I read about the opportunity to get to work in compiling, analyzing and and reporting financial data with everyone at [Company Name], I knew I couldn’t resist. This is the job I just had to apply for!
I’m convinced that I would meet every expectation you have of the person hired for this job.
There are several reasons why I consider myself a good fit for the available position. Here are the most important:
First of all, I have relevant work experience. During my two years at [Current Employer], I learned a great deal and gained valuable experience in presenting data to managers, investors and and other entities. I also feel that my experiences from other jobs I have had in the past, can be of great use to [Company Name]. Earlier in my career, I worked as economy assistant at [Former Employer].
Secondly, I would like to highlight the fact that my educational background fits the requirements for this role. I have received adequate on-the-job training, such as several courses in Microsoft Office. In addition to that, I always make sure to keep up to date on things that affect my job.
Finally, I know that my personal and professional qualities make me the right person for this job. I see myself as a socially skilled person who is very goal-oriented and will not let up until my targets are reached. Furthermore, I also have a persuasive manner, which I believe is important when you are working as an accountant.
Enough about me! At this point, I’m super curious to learn more about you, and how I can play a part in making your organization even better prepared for the future. I look forward to meeting you and – hopefully! – go on to join your team.
