I have seen your advertisement in the JobsPower.com for an accountant, and should be grateful if you would consider a short account of my character and capabilities.
For the last two years I have been employed as a junior accountant by a firm of import and export merchants where the wide field of work to be covered has given me a good all-round knowledge of accounts. To supplement my practical knowledge, I have taken an evening course in the Hong Kong Polytechnics. I feel that you could safely entrust a set of books to my care.
You will find enclosed a testimonial from the Head Professor of Hong Kong Polytechnics who has kindly offered to provide you with any further details you may require.
I trust that you will consider this application favourably and I wish to assure you that I should make every effort to be worthy of the confidence you may place in me.
