Staff Accountant

Dear Sir/Madam,

As a self-directed, versatile, and hardworking professional with a strong track record of academic excellence and hands-on practical accounting experience, I believe the combination of my professional skills, education, and personal qualities will be of benefit to your company.

My desire to forge a rewarding career as an accountant can be traced back to an affinity with numbers, innate analytical skills, and a sincere desire to utilize my technical expertise to the benefit of my employer and their clients. Having successfully completed by bachelor’s degree in accounting in my home country, I moved to Canada to undertake study toward the master of arts of economics from *** University in ***. The fact that I completed a master’s level degree program as a foreign student is testament to my talent, versatility, and sheer determination.

In addition to my studies which have given me a solid understanding of the standards and principles of accounting, I gained hands-on practical experience as an accounting intern in *** with **, CPA, CGA. While there, I assisted the owner in performing full-cycle accounting duties for a diverse array of clients, and remained ready and willing to undertake any duty capable of expanding my skillset. I am currently studying toward completion of the diploma in accounting program from ***, and if given the opportunity, I will bring the same inherent qualities to your company that have served me so well in my academic career.

I believe that I possess all of the raw materials needed to become a CPA and add real value to your firm and vast client base.I am a highly-motivated individual with a strong work ethic, excellent analytical and interpersonal skills, and outstanding team collaboration abilities. I very much look forward to discussing how my skills and expertise could help you achieve your organization’s short and long-term objectives. If you have any questions, please contact me at**or at ***

Yours sincerely,
