Dear Mr. Anderson:

I was reading Amtech’s newsletter for March, 2012 when I came across the advertisement for an open position of a Payroll Supervisor at your company. This position seems an ideal match for my experience, qualifications and professional goals. I am eager to contribute my passion to your renowned organization.

I developed strong skills in payroll management during my work at ABC Company. I am proficient in ensuring the accuracy of preliminary and final payroll reports including time sheets and spreadsheets. I possess hands-on experience in assuring compliance with both district and county policies and am able to ensure that all procedures are carried out in accordance to federal regulations. My understanding of complicated accounting and payroll procedures is vast; I am also proficient in STRS and PERS guidelines which make it easy for me to work in a supervisory mode. Additionally, my knowledge of budget monitoring is expansive which serves as an asset when working with limited resources and finding ways to utilize them effectively.

I am confident that you will find worth meeting me as I have much to offer to your company in terms of experience and expertise in payroll supervision. I will contact your office in the week of September 15 to find the possibility of an interview date and will be available at (444) 444-4444 in the interim. Thank you for your time and consideration.


Best Regards,

Bruce Campbell
