Mr. Joseph Alter

Suite # 200
Cherry Hill, NJ 08003-3696 
Dear Mr. Alter:

I am writing to apply for an Auditor Intern position at Defense Contract Audit Agency,which you are currently seeking to fill through your recruitment on the USAJOBS website. Enclosed is my résumé, which describes my academic and professional experiences to date. As my résumé details, I completed my undergraduate studies at the State University of New York at Stony Brook. I am currently pursuing a Master in Accountancy and Master in Business Administration at Rider University.

I have had significant experience in the auditing field, first at Orbitex Fund Services preparing mutual funds for audit, and then at Resources for Human Development where I audited employee timesheets. In addition, I have completed several courses in auditing including Fraud and Forensics Accounting and Principles of Auditing and Practices.

I believe that my academic background along with my professional experiences provide a solid foundation for your auditing position. Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to speaking with you in the near future.

Please note: As my résumé reflects I have acquired a myriad of experiences in the professional world. This has been attributed partly to the fact that my father was in the military, which explains my frequent moving. He has since retired and I look forward to a permanent stable job location.
