Dear Mr. Walton:
Please accept my resume in consideration of the bookkeeping position you have posted on hiremymom.com. I believe I am a very solid candidate for the position due to my extensive accounting background, strong organizational skills, and ability to work with a wide range of professionals.
At this stage in my career I have taken a step away from a traditional full time position and am searching for a flexible opportunity that will allow me to continue being an accountant and be home with my family.
In addition to my experiences provided on my resume, I would like to highlight some specific aspects of my previous positions. One of my summer jobs during college was taking multiple years of receipts and records and comparing with and updating Quickbooks. During my time at Kinney Group, we used Quickbooks while doing research for a more robust web based system. And finally, during my time with the Indianapolis International Film Festival I set them up with QuickBooks online for their bookeeping. Although some time has passed since these projects, I am very comfortable with software and learn very quickly and independently.
Due to my experience I would prefer a rate of $20 per hour.
