Sample Cover Letter 1
123 Paul Street,
Ms. Josephine Noonan,
Noonan and Murphy Accountants,
23 North Mall,
Dear Ms. Noonan,
I am writing in response to your advertisement for a trainee accountant, which is
currently advertised on the Careers Service website at University College Cork,
where I am a final year Economics student.
During my studies at University College Cork, I have opted for modules relating
to accounting and business economics, and have achieved excellent results. As
you will see from my CV I have spent the summer vacation period working in a
local accountancy firm. Although the work was initially clerical, I soon progressed
to audit work and thoroughly enjoyed this.
Your firm is of particular interest to me because it is of medium size and therefore
will allow me to become involved quickly as a team member. I enjoy challenges
and have always found problem solving very satisfying. For these reasons the
accountancy profession appears to suit my skills. I am keen to progress rapidly
towards a professional qualification and I am aware that you place great
emphasis on training.
I would welcome the opportunity to discuss the post and my own background in
more detail, and would be available for interview at any time from the beginning
of June onwards.
