Ms. Nora W. Morgan, Manager
The Linkus Group Inc.
200-1920 Yonge Street
Toronto, Ontario
M4S 3E2
Dear Ms. Morgan,
In June I will graduate from the University of Guelph-Humber with an honours degree in Business
Administration and a specialization in Accounting. Through the university’s career portal, I see the
position of Accounting Clerk with The Linkus Group Inc. as an excellent opportunity for me to apply the
financial knowledge that I have developed in university while working towards a CPA designation. I
believe that my energy, analytical skills, organizational abilities and creativity in tackling problems can
make a positive contribution to your company.
My previous work experience as a Junior Accountant at BeneFACT Consulting Group Inc. provided me
with valuable business skills such as the ability to organize and interpret social, economic and political
data. My responsibilities during this position included preparing individual and corporate tax returns,
and maintaining client books through financial statements. In this role, I developed a strong
understanding of accounting and finance from hands on experience, which I believe is an asset to this
My willingness to work hard is evident from the fact that I hold part-time professional positions
concurrent with my studies. As a customer service representative at TD, I was responsible for catering to
customers’ financial needs while extending outstanding customer service. Moreover, as an executive
member of the Guelph-Humber Accounting Council, I was in charge of providing students assistance
with accounting-related projects and inquiries. These experiences have enabled me to gain a realistic
view of the demands and challenges of the business world, and allowed me to hone my accounting
skills, as well as my interpersonal skills.
I welcome the opportunity to speak with you further regarding how the skills and experience mentioned
on my resume will enhance the role of Accounting Clerk at The Linkus Group. I look forward to hearing
from you.
John Smith
