Since you are a graduate in management accounting, I am sure you will enjoy this job. In addition, this job has fixed hours so you can leave office on time.

If you are interested in this position, please apply as quickly as possible. You can either email your resume to the HR manager or send it by post. More information about this position can be found on their website.

I hope to hear from you soon.

    Dear Jeevanjot,

    I’m writing this letter to inform you about the job posting at my local area’s accounting firm for an “Accounting Bookkeeper”.

    I saw the job posting outside the firm near to my house named “Granttax Accounting and Tax Services Inc.” while coming from work. Job duties were clearly demonstrated that candidate should have basic computer skills, payroll system and quickbooks software. In addition, they are looking for passion in employee to learn new things daily.

    Because we studied together, I know very well that you have great technical knowledge, payroll and sage 50 software that is nearly same as quickbooks. One more bonus point for you to get job here is they welcome fresh graduates, thus lack of job experience wouldn’t be issue to get this job.

    After make up your mind for this job, upload the resume on indeed where the job posted as “Accountant Bookkeeper” with the company name I stated above. This will be valid till 30th of March, so please try to upload your resume as soon as possible.

    I’m looking forward to hear from you about your decision about this job.

    Kind regards
