Dear Mr. Marcelo:

I am very interested in the summer internship in your accounting department, as advertised on your website. I am a recent accounting graduate from the New Jersey State University and would like to deliver my enthusiasm and knowledge for the growth of ABC Financials.

Following are some of my major attributes which makes me an excellent candidate:

– Demonstrated ability to learn all aspects of employer’s accounting and management software
– Well versed in supporting the accounting team
– Adept at ensuring accuracy of invoices
– Focused at expense reports, credit card bills and troubleshooting variances

Furthermore, I have thorough understanding of the functions that need to be taken into account when supporting the day to day management of a company’s finance. My detail orientation and love for accuracy can be instrumental in inputting vendor invoices and reconciling reports. Besides accounting tasks, I have a thorough knowledge of sorting and organizing files and records that support accounting functions.

As a team player who has a great passion for accounting and exceptional communications skills, I would like to meet with you to discuss my capabilities in detail.

Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to hearing from you.
