Dear [Mr./Ms./Mx.] [Hiring Manager’s Last Name],
My name is [Your Name] and I’m currently an accountancy graduate student at the University of Texas at San Antonio, where I also completed a B.B.A. in accounting with a business competency in entrepreneurship. I’ve been following your firm and was delighted to discover an internship opening at Haynie & Company on your website.
While completing my degree, I started an internship at a local accounting firm specializing in small business accounting, James R Garcia CPA Accounting. Over the last two years working at the firm, I have become skilled in using business accounting software, and adept in areas such as tax planning, tax preparation, and bank reconciliation.
Due to academic excellence, I was awarded several notable scholarships, including the Frost Accounting Scholarship, and the RSM Foundation Scholarship. Upon completing my masters, I will take the CPA exam.
In both my academic career and my professional development I’ve sought to consistently perform at an outstanding level. I intend to bring this same energy, commitment and drive to your firm, where I hope to continue in career advancement.
Please contact me to further discuss my qualifications and the contributions I can make to your business. I look forward to speaking with you. Thank you for your time and consideration.
