Are you attempting to write an accounting internship cover letter for the first time?
You will probably be thinking about a dozen of things since the “experts” want you to follow many rules to write a cover letter.
Seriously, there aren’t many rules unless you count the cover letter format.
The only thing that you may want to look out for is to make sure that your cover letter makes sense.
The rule of thumb here is to write a cover letter that is concise yet detailed – and relates to the position for which you are applying. Anything irrelevant needs to go!
Let us provide you with an example of an accounting internship cover letter:
Accounting Internship Cover Letter No Experience
March 14, 2019
Mr. Christopher Evans
36 Dekalb Street
Tonawanda, NY 18032
Dear Mr. Evans:
Volunteering to work at my business school’s accounts office right after I obtained my bachelor’s degree in accounting, was probably the best decision I made. This experience has prepared me well to work as an Accounting Intern at GMC Corporation, an organization that I have held in high esteem for many years owing to its high rating due to verified green practices.
The following qualifications make me a suitable candidate:
• Proficient in handling accounts receivable and payable duties
• Ability to manage bank reconciliations.
• Qualified to prepare reports that highlight expected results of tax returns and reconcile final returns with findings.
• Deeply familiar with assisting with periodic financial closings by strictly following set procedures and accounting protocols.
It would perhaps be more prudent if we met in person so that I can provide you with deeper insight into my suitability for an internship at GMC Corporation. I will call you next week to set up a convenient time for an interview. If you require further information from me, please call me at (000) 635-8542.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
