Dear Mrs. Keller,
I am applying today for your open position of Accounting Supervisor for your local accounting firm. Please accept this letter and enclosed resume as my formal application for this position.
I recently came across your advertisement on www.careerbuilder.com seeking an Accounting Supervisor for your firm, and know that my nine years in this role, as well as my education and background in accounting make me an excellent choice for this role. Apart from managing a team of six accounting professionals for the past nine years, I have also worked as a professional Accountant for four years previous to this. Moreover, I received a B.S. in Accounting from Thomas College. I have excellent time management skills, work well with people, and pride myself on meeting accuracy standards in deadline driven environments.
If you would like to meet, I ask that you contact me at your convenience at (555)-555-5555 as soon as possible. Thanks so much for your attention and the possibility of an interview.
