Dear Sir or Madam,

Position: Assistant Accountant

I am applying for the position of Assistant Accountant as advertised on the seek website on July 2011.

I finished my Bachelor of Commerce degree at the Australian University and am currently studying in a migration skilled program at PPA Australia. The major of my degree was Accounting and Finance. During University life, I truly enjoyed the challenges from study and I was happy to get alone with people. After that I found an internship as customer service representative in Haitong Securities Company in China. This internship required performing basic accounting functions with a high level of communication skill.

The skilled immigration program also strengthened my written and verbal communication skills and provided a lot of knowledge about Australia and the Australian workplace which is essential for an international student to learn before work. Also, during the University studies, I developed my academic skills like writing reports and analyzing data, and also boosted my ability of paying attention to details, which is an important part for this position.

I am very keen to secure the advertised position with your company. The rest of my qualifications and experience are outlined in the accompanying resume.

I look forward to discussing my application at an interview. I can be contacted at the above address or by telephone on 040xxxxxx.


Kathy Sue Encl.
