Account Manager Cover Letter

Account Managers, or Accounts Managers, follow trends in their specific industries, such as marketing or technology, in an effort to create and maintain business accounts for a variety of new and present clients.

Sometimes a candidate’s cover letter can make or break his or her application. Employers want to get a good sense from your cover letter that you are equipped with the skills and experience necessary to get the job done.

  • Providing oversight and strategic management for billing and Accounts Receivable teams
  • Ensuring accuracy in generating and validating billing, collections, audit support, unbilled receivable reconciliation, and the final closeout of contracts
  • Working closely with assigned Senior Account Managers to ensure that the client s needs are being met

A sample cover letter for an Account Manager which serves as a good example of the skills and experience required for this position appears below.
