Writing Cover Letters for Accounts Assistant Jobs Accountants are required to have passed Certified Public Accountant tests. Account assistants may also be required to have undergone the same education. The difference is that account assistants have fewer responsibilities. Consider starting off with accounts assistant jobs since it is very difficult to get a job as an accountant in a big firm if you have limited experience. You can then work your way up with time. As an accounts assistant you will do such jobs as reconciling bank accounts, preparing tax returns, preparing statements and assisting the accountant in his/her duties. The best way to search for an accounts assistant job is through a recruitment agency. These agencies list thousands of jobs from around the world, meaning you are more likely to get exactly what you are looking for. Most of the well-established agencies have an online presence. All you need to do to apply is log in, do your search and then click on the link to the job/s you are interested in. You will be asked to upload your CV and cover letter. Most people know how to write good CV’s, but cover letters are a whole new story. How do you write the perfect cover letter? Ensure that the cover letter follows international best practice for cover letters. It should include your name, the date you are writing, phone number and address. Begin the letter by giving a summary of your work experience and skills. You should, however, not belabour the points you are giving. When writing a cover letter for accounts assistant jobs, include the accounts assistant skills stipulated in the advert. You should be positive when indicating why you think you are the perfect fit given the skills required. You should indicate when you are free for an interview should the company wish that you avail yourself. Do not forget a job reference number – this should be just below your opening line. You should include the name of the recipient, by name whenever possible (such as Dear Mr. X or Dear Mrs. Y). End the cover letter just like you end a friendly letter with 'Yours Sincerely'. However, if you had started with 'Dear Sir/Madam', end the letter with ‘Yours faithfully’. Ensure that there are no grammatical or spelling errors, the points are well organized and that quality paper is used (if you are sending and not uploading it). Consider enlisting the services of recruitment agencies to help you with cover letters for accounts assistant jobs.
