Dear Mr. Armstrong,
I want to take the opportunity to thank you for posting your need for an Accounts Receivable Coordinator in Washington Post last Sunday. I know I would make a great match for this position, and have included my resume for your immediate consideration.
There are a number of reasons I believe I am the best candidate for this position. To begin, I have a degree in Accounting from Prescott College, and thus, a solid practical knowledge of accounting software and financial accounting. Moreover, I have worked the last six years in an Accounts Receivable role-both as an entry level Accounts Receivable Associate as well as an Accounts Receivable Coordinator at National Service Corporation. I am extremely accurate, organized, and highly efficient; and I work successfully with all types of people.
Thank you for taking the time to review this letter and enclosed resume. I can be contacted at (555)-555-5555 as soon as possible. I would love to meet in person if it suits you.
