Application for the position of Accountant
I saw your advertisement for the position of Accountant in South China Morning Post yesterday. I think I have the required qualifications and experience for the position.
Then, I pursued my study of accountancy at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University and I got a bachelor degree of business administration (accountancy) with a second honour in 2015. In 2016, I passed all the professional examinations of Association of Certified Chartered Accountants (ACCA). Now, I am a qualified accountant.
As I wanted to widen my work knowledge, I left the company in December 2006 of my own accord.
My second job was an audit assistant with the Big Four Accountants in January 2017. Being an audit person, I carried out all the audit work including verification of final accounts, overseeing the stocktaking, ensuring the compliance of company laws and stock exchange regulations. Now, I am still working with this company. The reason why I want to leave my present and work for your company is I want to focus my career on accountancy rather than being an auditor.
If I am fortunate to fill the position, I will have to give my present employer one-month notice. In other words, I will be available to work at your company about one month after your kind confirmation of my engagement with your company.
I would like to enclose my photograph, resume and a copy of my qualification documents. I shall be grateful if I will be invited to attend an interview at any time convenient to you. Then, I can explain more about myself.
Thank you for your attention.
