Dear Hiring Team,
I am a Bachelor of Commerce graduate from McGill University with a Major in Accounting and a Concentration in Finance. I possess about two years of hands-on experience in the field of accounting through my internships and full-time jobs. With no prior experience, I started working on QuickBooks at the start-up Wavo, and after investing in a 2-week online course, I not only took over all the accounts of the company, but also managed to streamline the data entry process to make it more efficient and accurate.
I recently worked as a Staff Accountant at Cool Agencies where I learnt the accounting process that goes behind each shipment clearance, and I successfully honed my organizational and data management skills by handling data entries and updating files. This was truly a valuable experience as I also developed interpersonal skills via my daily interactions with a diverse clientele and custom clearing agents, and successfully managed to generate an increase in positive customer feedback during my ten months there.
Moreover, as Vice-President of Finance at The Citizens Foundation (TCF)-McGill I was required to record all the financial transactions for the facilitation of bi-annual audits, and was also responsible for gathering sponsors for fundraising events. My experience in this organization allowed me to demonstrate my leadership skills and to constructively and efficiently work as a member of a team. I consider myself a reliable and trustworthy team player and believe that I will thrive in a stimulating and dynamic work environment.
Finally, I believe that my commitment to work towards the Certified Public Accountant designation, combined with strong leadership and teamwork skills, will make me an invaluable asset to any company I work for. I would welcome the opportunity to discuss my application in more detail with you. Thank you for your consideration and look forward to hearing from you.
