Dear Mr. Johnson —

I'd love to ensure that clarity, accountability, and accuracy is given to your Accounts Payable team. I have significant experience as an Accounts Payable Clerk and I'm comfortable dealing with more than $10M+ in outbound payments and reconciling invoices.

During my tenure as a previous Accounts Payable Clerk I was able to:
Pay more than 10,000 invoices with 100% accuracy.
Ensure that all debits have been reconciled on a daily and weekly basis.
Produced reporting for our lead Controller and CPA.

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.
