Accounting Graduate Cover Letter Guidelines
If you are applying for entry-level accounting jobs in 3 different companies, you should send them the same cover letter.
In fact, you have to create a different cover letter for various companies as per their needs and expectations.
Use language that is professional yet casual. Too much of either can put the hiring manager off. You need to be able to keep a balance.
Do not make jokes. They won’t be appreciated.
On the other hand, do not try to be too formal.
Below is a sample application cover letter for fresh accounting graduates.
Feel free use and modify this version as per your requirements.
