Peak Cover Letter
Hi Mr. Dickey,
Your recent job posting for a Bookkeeper & Operations Assistant has piqued my interest!
Right now, my â€œday jobâ€ is as an accountant at a healthcare organization, and then I moonlight as an online bookkeeper for a small accounting consulting firm, with the ultimate goal of being able to fully work from home.
I have close to five years of accounting experience, an MS in Accountancy, and current experience as an online QBO bookkeeper. Throughout my career, Iâ€™ve done various account, credit card, and bank reconciliations. For the past three years, Iâ€™ve been actively involved in budgeting at Sutter, as well as external reporting for taxes and various governmental surveys. While I was a Senior Accountant at Enterprise, I was heavily involved in accounts payable and receivables. While I donâ€™t have experience in everything youâ€™re asking right now (such as payroll), Iâ€™m confident in my ability to learn the tasks quickly.
On the tech side, I have a solid knowledge of QBO, Excel, and other software that may or may not be used by small business. At every job Iâ€™ve had, Iâ€™ve needed to learn multiple new and sometimes counter-intuitive programs on the fly. Iâ€™ve been able to do so mostly independently and rather efficiently.
Over the course of the last five years, I have developed a strong basis in accrual accounting and financial analysis. I also have many of the â€œsoftâ€ skills necessary to learn and excel at the position responsibilities: ability to learn, attention to detail, highly organized, analytical skills, excellent communication, customer-centric thinking, positivity, etc. In my opinion, the soft skills are what would potentially set me apart from other applicants. I believe that I would be a great asset to your company.
I would love the opportunity to talk more about the position.
Thank you for your time, and I hope to hear from you.
