Sample cover letter for Internship position at accounting firm



It is with great enthusiasm that I submit my application for the position in Auditing Services of XXX. With my academic background on accounting and my internship experience in accounting firms, I think my skills and qualifications will make me an asset in your Tax team.

As you will see from my attached resume, my academic background focused on accounting. In addition to the time management skills, I have also developed analytical skills when interning in XXX Accounting Firm as an auditor. I reviewed the companies three years’ lease expense and identify irregularities. I made excel sheets specifying the monthly lease expense on all ten facilities of the client and highlighted the irregular months.

Last but not least, I am attended to details. During my last internship as an Accounts Payable Clerk, I reconciled purchases orders, sales invoices and receiving reports. Reconciling hundreds of records required great attention to details, and I did not make any mistakes in reconciliation.

From the description of the qualities provided for a Audit Associate, I believe my credentials align well with what you are seeking. I enclosed my resume for your reference.

I would appreciate the opportunity to meet with you and discuss how I could add value to your team in greater detail. If you need further information, please call me or email me directly. Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.
