Dear Recruiting Team,
As a recent retiree with a passion for accounting and bookkeeping, I am excited to submit my application for the Bookkeeping position.
I began my last position as an Accounting Technician, and worked my way up to Chief Business Official in less than five years. During my 17-year tenure, I learned all aspects of bookkeeping and accounting, and developed strategies to ensure my work was accurate and timely. Effectively juggling multiple tasks was routine, and I discovered that my flexible nature allowed me to easily accommodate shifting priorities. Team work was essential in my position, and I appreciated the value of diverse viewpoints. Working independently comes easily to me, and team perspectives help insure that my outcomes are aligned with the bigger picture.
My core values start with an extremely high work ethic where honesty and integrity are an absolute. I am solutions-driven, and always strive to bring viable options to the table rather than problems. I see challenges as opportunities to be pursued. I am detail oriented, highly organized, and communicate well. Other traits you would find of value include maturity, a â€œcan doâ€ attitude, self-motivation, and high energy.
This position is highly appealing to me. Twelve years after achieving my professional goals, I accepted an early retirement package last year. While I thoroughly enjoyed the management aspects of that position, I am ready to take a step back to a position where I can utilize my excellent bookkeeping skills in a more hands-on role. The Bookkeeper position would suit me quite well at this time in my life and look forward to securing a position such as this one.
I sincerely thank you for your consideration of my application. If I can provide further details or letters of reference, please do not hesitate to contact me.
