I'm writing to express my interest in the accountant position advertised on Craigslist.org on April 5. I think you will find that I am strongly qualified for the job required, both academically and in terms of skills and experience. My qualifications suit your needs, as listed:
"A Bachelor's Degree in Accounting is strongly preferred, but not required."
I have a B.A. in Accounting from The University of Washington, class of 2008.
"1-3 years' experience as an auditor, accountant or financial analyst is required"
I spent 2 years as a financial analyst for ABC Company, followed by a 3-year position as an auditor for ABC Company, where I am currently employed.
"Tech-savvy and fast typing skills required!"
I am proficient in Microsoft Excel, SAP, Hyperion and QuickBooks. I type ~80 words per minute with 100% accuracy.
I would like to set up a meeting at your earliest convenience to discuss my qualifications for this position. I will contact your office on Monday to arrange an appointment. Thank you for your consideration.
