Dear Mrs. Nelson,
Your posting for a Payroll Assistant for your company, recently got my attention. I saw it advertised on www.monster.com, and I am highly interested in this role. Please consider the enclosed resume for this position.
I have a degree in Finance from Principia College and have worked in the Payroll department of Dynamic Office & Accounting Solutions for the past 11 years. This has required a great management of time, payroll employees, and knowledge of benefits and procedure. I have been successful in all of these roles. I am also well aware of current and existing payroll laws and regulations and make sure that our processes follow these perfectly.
If you’d like to meet in person to discuss this position further, please name the day and time and give me a call at (555)-555-5555. Thank you for your time and attention to my cover letter and resume.
