I learned about the position through Ms. Sumner from Meredith Academic & Career Planning. Ms. Sumner mentioned you are looking for an individual who would like a long term employment, who is computer savvy, and a people's person. Long term commitment - As a summer symposium counselor, I developed strong multitasking skills as well as excellent communication skills. Now with a leadership role, I am able to contribute new ideas and improve the program to have a successful outcome this summer, and a strong foundation for others to build upon in years to come. Fast learner - In my current position as a XXXX SSSSS, I attend trainings and review the material with my coworkers. It is crucial to be up to date with trends in the market since new products are constantly being released. Team player - Playing soccer taught me to adapt to different styles of thinking. I learned to make quick decisions while taking into account the consequences that my decision would have in short and long term situations. I enjoyed interacting with other people and working as a team to accomplish a set goal. Once again I would like to express my interest in XXXX SSSSS for the accounting/ bookkeeping position. Please review my attached resume at your convenience. You may reach me by phone (919) 123-3211 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to speaking with you in the near future. Sincerely, XXX SSSS
