I am writing to apply for the position of Accountant which was advertised in Monday’s edition of the New York Times.
I graduated from the University of Cambridge in 1999 with a degree in Banking trade and Finance. I have been working as an Accountant since 1999 for Grants Enterprise, which is based in Glasgow. Prior to this, I worked as an Accountant for Coopers Computers during university vacations. I am computer literate and I also hold certificates in computer skills.
I am friendly, responsible and relate well to other members of staff. I could work under pressure and I have excellent communication skills. As my references show, I have been very popular with my previous employers.
I have enclosed a copy of my CV. I would be glad to attend an interview at any time convenient to you. I would appreciate a reply at your earliest convenience.
