Cover Letter – Bookkeeping

Dear Search Committee,

Thank you for the opportunity to submit my resume.

I am an adaptable professional with a BA in History. Over the course of my career, I’ve developed a skill set that includes strong communication skills, both written and verbal, executive support, project management, and the ability to work independently. Overall, I have consistently demonstrated multitasking, problem-solving, and writing abilities in each of my positions, and I invite you to review my detailed achievements and interests in the attached resume.

I have worked in a bookkeeping capacity in various positions since 2001. Most recently I was treasurer for a non-profit organization, taking their bookkeeping platform from excel spreadsheets to Quickbooks. I currently am a freelance bookkeeper working for a Boston-based lawyer, using Quickbooks and a Boston-based CPA using Quickbooks Online.

After reviewing my resume, I hope you will agree that I am the type of positive and collaborative candidate that you are looking for. I am excited to elaborate on how my proven skills and abilities can benefit your organization. Please contact me at 603-353-9029 or via email at to arrange for a convenient meeting time.

Thank you for your consideration, and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
