Mr. Michael Cardiff
Senior Manager (Accounts & Finance)
Nirvana Events
2 Quaker Ave
New York, NY 58874


Dear Mr. Cardiff:

This is in response to the listing for an Accounts Assistant position on Craigslist. I would like to apply for this job and enclosing my resume for your consideration. My post graduate diploma in accounting coupled with a considerable knowledge of accounting procedures and 6 months’ hands-on experience makes me an exceptional candidate for this position.

My experience as an accounts assistant at Xerox has given me sufficient knowledge of all the procedures that make up an accounting system. As required, I am highly skilled in performing payroll activities, bookkeeping, credit control, bank reconciliations,  purchase ledger, sales invoices, and other general finance duties. I am also able to develop several reports including balance sheets and profit and loss accounts.

Moreover, I am proficient in all popular accounting software, MS Excel, Word, PowerPoint and able to manage electronic scheduling and spreadsheets effectively. I understand that any position in the accounting department is of sensitive nature considering the fact that cash is involved and I am pleased to say that I have been trusted with the company’s accounts blindly.

I anticipate that my skills and experience will be considered useful and I will be provided with a chance to serve Nirvana Events. I am available to join on immediate basis and can be contacted at (000) 333-9999. I will follow up on this application by June 9, 2012.

Thank you for your time and consideration.


Sincerely yours,

Roger Andrew
