Dear Ms. Nelson:


Please accept this cover letter and enclosed resume as application for the accounting     internship that I found advertised on William Paterson University’s online job board.  This position seems to fit very well with my education, experience and career interests.


The position sounds like an exciting challenge which will expose me to many of the

elements of accounting. My experience includes journal entries, monthly reconciliations and quarter end closing procedures. I believe my past experience will make me the perfect fit for this internship, and I will be able to quickly dive into the more in-depth aspects that the position will require.  If you take a look at my resume you will see that I have already completed two internships successfully and am entering into my senior year at William

Paterson University. I have completed many of the upper level accounting courses and

during the last two years, I have been a member of the Accounting Club at my university.


My background and career goals seem to match the job requirements well.   Furthermore, I am genuinely interested in the position and in working for Hammond & Associates, LLC.  Your firm has an excellent reputation and comes highly recommended.


I look forward to hearing from you about this employment opportunity and further         discussing my qualifications.  I can reached by email at or by phone at  (917) 847-8493.  Thank you for  your time and  consideration.
