Dear Ms. Howard
I saw the advertisement for the Bank Clerk position for First United Bank and I would like to express my interest in this opening.
I have an accounting degree and I have worked as a store manager for the last five years, both of which have helped prepare me for this position. I have outstanding math skills and reasoning abilities with experience counting and making bank deposits. I can keep accurate records and I am proficient with a variety of computer programs.
I have the ability to cash checks, accept deposits, handle withdrawals and deal with money transfers accurately. I understand the importance of verifying ID and checks before cashing. I have experience dealing with money orders, traveler’s checks and cashier’s checks. I have the ability to learn any other duties of the Bank Clerk that I do not currently have experience handling.
I have experience with promoting sales and the ability to be sales oriented by offering services that can improve the customer banking experience. I can answer customer questions and help solve many account issues but for anything that requires special approval, I can direct them to someone that can handle their particular needs.
My excellent interpersonal skills help to make interaction with customers and coworkers pleasant and productive. I enjoy greeting and holding simple conversations with customers while performing the transactions they need. It helps to build a friendly environment that makes customers feel welcome.
Please call (555)-555-5555 to arrange an interview where we can meet in person and discuss the details of this position.
