Dear Mr. Johnson —

Finance is a critical part of every business. It is the blood that pumps through the veins of any business. I always had a strong passion and ability to control large quantities of numbers. From a young age, I realized this was a unique talent that others didn't obtain. I decided to put my passion for business and my talent for numbers to good use. That's why as an Accountant I've been able to:

Controlled more than $15M in AUM on behalf of a previous financial organization.
Assisted with more than 15 federal audits.
Assisted more than 200 business with their corporate, state, and local level taxes and financial strategies.

I look forward to interviewing with you. If there is any information that you'd like to see that I didn't include in my application, please feel free to contact me and I will return that to you as soon as possible.
