Sample cover letter for Internship position at Tomlinson


Accounting Administrative Assistant

Dear R.W. Tomlinson Human Resources,

My education thus far in Accounting and Economics at the University of Ottawa offers much to a company that seeks an organized and dependable employee. With the completion of my third year in the Accounting at the Telfer School of management, I am eager to apply this new-learned knowledge in book keeping, accounts management and Canadian tax laws to the Thomlinson seasonal accounting administrator position.

Working with various student organizations such as AIESEC Ottawa and Deca UOttawa as an executive, I had the opportunity to work closely with their finance departments in preparing budgets, forecasts and monthly invoices. Organization and reliability are my two most important traits I bring to any job, necessary in verifying the accuracy of the preparation and filing of documents. In addition, I am no stranger to receptionist/administrative duties, as I have worked as the administrative assistant for a local computer repair business; filing, client reception, scheduling and sales would be a few skills I could bring to the accounting administrator position.

Furthermore, with recent knowledge of accounting theories fresh in my mind from my recent year of study, understanding of accounting functions, invoicing, payments, credits, double entry accounting, and reconciliations would not be a problem. In addition, my proficiency in the Microsoft Office suites, including Microsoft Word and Excel would be a strong asset in fulfilling the duties of the position.

I am a dedicated individual looking to gain more practical experience in the accounting profession. As a result, I do plan on pursuing me CA, CPA designations after graduation and pursue a career in accounting and I am sure that it would be worthwhile for us to meet. Although it is my exam month, I generally available on any day other than Tuesdays. Should you have any questions, you may reach me preferably via email ( or if needed, via phone (_______).

Thank you for your consideration.
