Tom Burns, Human Resources Director
Widgets Inc.
425 Outskirts Road
Home Town, IL 60615


Dear Mr. Burns,

I’m a managerial accountant with 9 years of experience in the widget industry and a proven track record in budgeting, performance evaluation and cost and asset management.

I have helped major corporations successfully weather troubled economic times through judicious cost-cutting and providing real-time data essential for decision-making. I’d like to put my analytic skills, strategic thinking and experience as a team player to work for Widgets Inc.

I received both my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Accounting from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, graduating in 1998. I received my CMA from the Institute of Management Accountants in 2000.

In my work as a junior internal auditor at Blidgets Inc., I was able to reduce cost over-runs by 5% and reduce the cost of goods sold by 8%. As an accounting manager at Flidget’s Manufacturing, I was able to keep expenses at the same level while increasing our outputs by 9% over a three-year period. At the Spidgets Group, where I served as deputy budget director, I provided key data on the success of cost-cutting measures and worked with the executive team to use those savings to drive a new solar-powered widget initiative.

I would like to schedule an appointment with you to further review my background and discuss how I might be of assistance in helping Widgets Inc. pursue its corporate vision.

My resume is enclosed. Thank you for your consideration and I look forward to hearing from you.
