Dear Mr. Johnson —

Finance has never been short on paperwork. That's why as an Accounting Clerk, I understand that my primary tasks are to help ensure that both the head CPA, Accounting Assistant, and controllers have properly filed all applicable forms during their work. If our forms aren't filed correctly, we lose everything. During my tenure as an Accounting Clerk, I have been able to:

Assisted with filing forms on behalf of a head Controller through a trading firm.

Assisted with all personal tax filings on behalf of more than 100 corporate businesses.
Handled tax filings for more than 100 corporate businesses.
Handled client billing and customer service.

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.
