Dear (Personalize Whenever Possible):
I saw your ad on Craigslist and am very interested in the part-time bookkeeping position you mentioned. I am currently an active volunteer interested in returning to the workforce.
Prior to having children I was an office manager at We’ve Got You Covered, overseeing scheduling and billing for a thriving insurance practice.
Though I have been out of the work force temporarily, I have been putting my skills to good use as a fundraiser and treasurer for my children’s school. I have stayed current on my computer skills and am familiar with Quicken, as well as the full suite of Microsoft Office products.
My flexible schedule would allow me to work around your busy times with ease…either in your office or at my home.
I look forward to hearing more about the position and how my skills would be an asset to your company.
