Sample cover letter for Full Time position at CN railroad



As per the post on your website for the position of Composite Accounting Representative (ID 6121), it is with great enthusiasm that I submit my application. I am a CPA Candidate at John Molson School of Business (JMSB) with bookkeeping and managing experience. I have much to contribute to CN’s Accounting Department.

The experience I gained working for my family’s business while pursuing my undergraduate degree, provided me with a combination of strong communication and teamwork skills while fueling my interest in the accounting and finance side of the business. The majority of my experience has focused on performing a wide variety of accounting activities, including account payable and receivable, cost analysis, billing, and invoicing.

While attending JMSB, I had to carefully divide my time between my studies in Montreal and managing the family’s business in Ottowa. Through this experience I have developed the necessary skills to work with various groups, communicate effectively, and most importantly handle multiple responsibilities under time constraints. In addition, working in the service industry I have had to interact with clients on a daily basis, requiring me to adapt to different situations and solve problems while exhibiting excellent interpersonal skills. I believe these skills will contribute significantly towards developing a career with CN.

One of my strongest points is my self-motivation which allows me to perform well under pressure and against aggressive deadlines in any pressurised environment. Being a highly analytical thinker I am able to quickly identify, scrutinise, improve, and streamline complex work processes.

It would be a pleasure to be a part of your esteemed company and strong team. I am eager and ready to start immediately. Please find enclosed my resume which will provide you greater details of my background and what I have to offer. I look forward to meeting with you to discuss the role, the qualifications, and my ability to add value to CN in more detail.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
