Dear Mr. XXXXX,

Your listing in the New York Times this Sunday stated that you need an accountant with two to three years of progressively responsible experience with high tech clients, and proven success with data management accounting procedures. After reviewing your requirements and my background, I believe that my experience and your needs match perfectly.

For the past three years, as my resume indicated, I have been working during the summer and part-time for MLK Accountants as both a junior accountant and auditor. I began at MLK as a staff assistant while in high school and have been steadily promoted to my current position while attending Fitchburg State University. I have successfully worked on a wide variety of accounts, mostly for Fortune 500 firms in the New York City area. In addition, I was a term coordinator for MLK’s computerization of its accounts in 1993. 1 personally evaluated and suggested MLK’s current VAX 220 system, as well as structured a successful in-house database training program for all clerical employees on the new system. Furthermore, in conjunction with my BA studies at Fitchburg, I developed a specialty in statistics that I have used with tax cases on high tech and computer accounts.

I believe that I can make some substantive contributions as an accountant at Copyvox, for my proven skills and your growth into voice activated equipment merge well. I would welcome a challenging position with a progressive company like Copyvox.

Thank you for reviewing my qualifications. I will call your office and arrange an interview at a convenient time. I look forward to meeting you and working with you in the near future.

Sincerely,

XXXXX XXXXXXXX
