Dear Ms. Smith:
I am an accomplished bookkeeper with advanced knowledge in accounting and 2+ years of experience utilizing QuickBooks for accounts management. I would like to bring my collective experience and success to the bookkeeper position you are currently advertising, specifically contributing the following to Northeast Financial Agency:
- Advanced proficiency in accounts payable/receivable, bank statement reconciliations, and general ledger management.
- Training and supplemental coursework completed in Accounting Principles, Business Law, Financial Accounting, Forensic Accounting, and Management Accounting.
- Expertise in account auditing and payroll management.
While completing a Bachelor’s in Accounting, I accepted an internship with Express Printing, Inc. where I received training and experience in utilizing QuickBooks for accounts management. Immediately after my bookkeeping internship, I was hired by Lancaster Animal Hospital where I implemented QuickBooks to replace the hospital’s Excel-based accounting system. In my role as bookkeeper at the hospital, I have successfully managed all bookkeeping operations while also updating accounting protocols, which has resulted in more streamlined yearly auditing of all business accounts and a 20% reduction in processing of biweekly payroll. With my extensive experience in accounting and my expertise in QuickBooks, I believe I would serve well in the role of bookkeeper for Northeast Financial Agency.
I would appreciate an opportunity to meet with you to further discuss my bookkeeping experience at your earliest convenience. I may be reached at 555.555.5555 or via email at email@example.com. Thank you for your time and consideration.
