Dear Mr. John:
As a passionate and committed individual, I would like to be considered for Accounting internship at FindTheBest Inc. As your job description perfectly complements my education and skills, I am sure in my ability to become a great asset to your company .
Currently, I am pursuing my Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting at the Hanover College, and will be graduating in August 2017. Due to my hard work and dedication, I have achieved consistent high grades throughout my academics. In high school, I have received the awards for the best student in class four times, the most punctual student two times and best presenter award twice.
As mentioned in my resume, I have an urge to succeed in every aspect of professional life and therefore I put my head-n-heart into anything I pursue. In the first semester of bachelors program, I carried out a research project on basics of auditing at ABM Industries, and was later offered an internship by the same company because of my motivation and proficiency in accounting procedures. While excelling at performance, I assisted managers with internal and external audits and other assigned duties. Moreover, I apply my hard earned skills, qualifications and knowledge in diligently working for the Weekly Business Times as an honorary employee. There, I wrote analytical columns and articles about varying financial positions of listed organizations across US. To add to your interest, the article published in March 2015 highlighting fast growth of FindTheBest was authored by me.
The attached resume summarizes my skills and knowledge. To follow-up and possibly set up an interview date and time, I will call your office after one week. If any additional information is needed in the interim, please call me at (001) 103-3436.
Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to meeting with you in an interview.
