Ian Smith
Accounting Intern

May 1st, 2013

Dear Mr. Johnson —

Finance has always been more to me than numbers. I recall as a young child I use to get teased because I was better at calculating figures than my former school mates. This was something that stuck with me until around my high school years. When I realized that numbers were more than just a "geeks" passion. It was something I could apply myself toward and develop businesses around.

During my tenure in college I was:
President of my finance club.
Assisting my dean of students with all tax needs.
Started an Accounting and CPA club.

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.
