Sample Cover Letter Guide 2012
What is a cover letter? Many of us are often confused as to what to include in a cover letter. Do you repeat the same info in your CV? What is the importance of a cover letter anyway?
The main purpose of a cover letter is to explain or prove why one is a suitable candidate for a given job. It’s not a chance to repeat your duties and responsibilities as outlined in your CV.
This free sample cover letter for a senior accountant job will help you put together a winning job application.

P.O Box Nairobi Kenya.
Dear Mr John,
During my five years at company XXX – two years as a junior accountant, 3 years as senior accountant – I have gained experience in all areas of accounting, including taxation, internal controls, financial and business management. As a senior accountant, I have helped my firm reduce overheads by a 26% margin through effective cost control measures. I was also instrumental in clearing KRA audit issues that had been pending for three years. We are now tax compliant.
More than that, I pride myself on my ability to grasp technical requirements quickly and easily, I always make sure I know accounting computer systems inside and out, and I keep up-to-date with new software on the market.
Along with all the necessary qualifications and skills of an accountant, I am also a social, people-oriented person, making me highly suited to senior management roles. My written and verbal communication skills are impeccable, as are my leadership and team-building abilities, as I have often had to allocate tasks, train and mentor junior accounting staff.
Thank you for taking the time to consider my application and I look forward to meeting with you to discuss the position further.
