i have seen your advertisement in the jobspower.com for an accountant, and should be grateful if you would consider a short account of my character and capabilities.
for the last two years i have been employed as a junior accountant by a firm of import and export merchants where the wide field of work to be covered has given me a good all-round knowledge of accounts. to supplement my practical knowledge, i have taken an evening course in the hong kong polytechnics. i feel that you could safely entrust a set of books to my care.
you will find enclosed a testimonial from the head professor of hong kong polytechnics who has kindly offered to provide you with any further details you may require.
i trust that you will consider this application favourably and i wish to assure you that i should make every effort to be worthy of the confidence you may place in me.
