Dear Reader,

        The enclosed resume is for your consideration in evaluating my qualifications to meet your
accounting needs. Reviewing this resume will be worth your time because you can find out that I:

         1. am goal oriented.
         2. am organized and work efficiently. Our current accounting department of 2
            employees puts out more work, with greater accuracy, than it did with 5 employees,
            due to altering systems and processes.
         3. possess advanced computer skills in a variety of business related software such
            as Microsoft Office, Adobe Acrobat, Dreamweaver, Paradox, and several accounting
            software packages. These skills were mostly developed on personal time, from
            personally acquired texts, and have benefited my employer by processing a variety
            of functions such as automated auditing routines, auto-email notifications, sales tax
            calculations for drop shipments throughout the country, and auto-postings to
            shipping records; and more, without having to spend additional money for new
            programs or equipment.
         4. have well developed oral and written communication skills.
         5. am congenial with other people.

You may also find out that:

         1. every performance evaluation on me had comments regarding excellent
            punctuality as well as willingness to stay after hours if necessary.
         2. my absenteeism is low. Less than 2 weeks of sick leave were used since April of
            1993. Some vacation hours were forfeited to accommodate unexpected workload

        A great deal of satisfaction comes from doing accounting work. That fact, coupled with good work
ethics and experience, can work to be strong benefits for your company. Please contact me soon to make
arrangements where we may further discuss a possible working relationship.
