Dear Mr. Ryan,

I have recently learned of your search for an Assistant Controller, and I was inspired to submit my resume. As a CPA with 11 years of Accounting experience and three years of experience as an Assistant Controller, I believe I have the experience necessary to do well in your organization.

My professional experience as an Assistant Controller includes working under the supervision of a Controller to ensure the accuracy of the financials of Swype Digital. I am certain this experience has prepared me to thrive at Robinson Financial.

The following is a list of my most relevant skills and accomplishments

Earned Bachelor’s degree in Accounting from Northwestern University

Passed CPA exam and has practiced as a CPA for eight years

Negotiated vendor contracts based on strategic budget forecasts

Prepared monthly P&Ls and reconciled outstanding accounts

Helped ensure employer passed their yearly audit the last three years

Besides these accomplishments, I believe it is my dedication to accuracy that makes me a good candidate. Even the smallest error can affect the bottom line, and that is something I take seriously. If you would like to learn more about me, then I would love to come in for an interview at your earliest convenience. Thank you for your consideration.
