One of the most important cover letter writing advice that you will receive is that it must be different from every other cover letter that a hiring manager has read.
How is it possible for you to know that? It isn’t. What is possible is that you create a cover letter which is as unique as possible, and is according to what is mentioned in the job description.
First things first. Make sure that you have the job description in front of you before you begin your writing endeavors. But do remember to keep the importance of relevance in mind
Anything that is not relevant to your case, should be left out. Take each point from the description and match it with what you possess in terms of skills. And you will be able to write a cover letter in no time. Here is a sample:

Dear Mr. Norman:

Confident that my services will be welcome at The Rotary as well, I invite you to review the enclosed resume, for details on my expertise and experience in this regard.
Periodic reports generation, handling profit and loss fluctuations, and managing consolidation and inter-company transactions are my strong points. Owing to the fact that I am an exceptionally well-organized individual, I can handle a wide variety of complex work duties, including maintaining master lists of monthly journal entries, and detailed lists of balance sheets accounts, and assist in the production of core financial statements.
I am excellently qualified to determine and fix errors and discrepancies in accounts, before there is a chance of them lowering the integrity of accounts. Also, I have been especially trained to handle the various aspects of accounting work, including creating profit and loss accounts, making balance sheets, and handling data entry work, in a precise and accurate manner.
Positive that a face to face meeting between us will be a great eye opener as far as my candidature as a general ledger accountant is concerned, I will contact you after 5 working days. Thank you for your time and consideration.
