Accounting Assistant cover letters should contain prior work examples where you properly assisted a CPA or head Accountant. An Accounting Assistant places their primary focus on the administrative tasks associated with the financial work and bookkeeping that CPA's perform.

When putting together your cover letter, be sure to allude to the soft skills that make you stand out as an assistant to a CPA, as well as applicable hard skills that might make you more suitable for the position (such as Microsoft Excel experience).
