Dear Mr. Johnson —

As an Accounting Specialist, I understand that sometimes teams need someone who sits on the accounting team to ensure that customers are going to come back to us. As well as ensure that customers know about new services and offerings. For example, knowing that tax preparation season is ahead and giving them notice.

During my tenure as a previous Accounting Specialist I was able to:
Work with more than 500 customers to ensure their financial stability.
Work with more than 500 customers on which services and offerings best suit their needs.
Work alongside executive leadership to set sales goals along with our finance teams capacity.

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.
