Dear Mr. Goldman:

When I saw your post on JobSearchJimmy.com for a managerial position in the accounting department of your firm, I knew I had to write to you immediately. I am in the market for a job in this field—in particular working as an accounting manager.

My resume points to five years as an accountant while living in Southern California right out of college. Working with budgets, numbers, spreadsheets, etc., has always been of interest to me. I know that I have found my career niche. I also have a talent for working with people. I have leadership skills as well as accounting expertise.

Now I am ready to manage others and would be especially happy to meet with you in person to discuss in detail what you are looking for in the person you hire and to hear what I would bring to your company if you decide I'm the one to fill this opening.

If you wish to get together, you can reach me at: 777-777-7777 days or evenings. Thank you so much for reading my cover letter and resume and for considering calling me in for an interview. I look forward to meeting you soon.

Sincerely,

Jack Job Seeker
