Salutations:

I am a Business Professional with solid experience in the leadership role of CFO, Controller, Financial Specialist, Customer Service, Human Resources, and Office Management. With my past experience and continuing educational background in Business and Accounting, I am looking for a position that will allow me to utilize the skills and education I have gained to join an organization that will not only continue my growth but become a successful asset within the organization.

Here are a few of my significant capabilities:

■ Ability to implement new programs to improve production and efficiency

■ Ability to work individually and in a group setting

■ Ability to work in a fast-paced environment and adjust to any situation

■ Constantly learn new techniques and carry a professional appearance

■ Willing to accept leadership positions or become a leader when needed

■ Ability to multi-task and organize as well as be detail-oriented

In my resume you will get an opportunity to see the other skills I have to offer to your organization as well as my 17 years of experience and consistent work history. My education and experience has prepared me to adapt to any situation I am in by handling the situation in a calm and effective manner that will lead to continued success of the company. One of the qualities I pride myself on is my willingness to listen, adjust when necessary, and grow. I am also an individual who believes learning never ends. There is constant innovation, whether in software, guidelines, or practices, and I like to be at the forefront of that innovation rather than lagging behind.

When we meet you will see that I am a very professional individual, I carry myself at all times with respect, and I will represent your company in the same manner. During my professional career, I have worked with many clients, CEOs, CFOs, VPs, district and regional staff, and various other high ranking officials and I understand my place and how to carry myself accordingly. I treat my co-workers and my superiors with that same respect on all occasions as well. In my career, I have been expected to work individually and as a team player many times. I have also been a leader and a follower when necessary. My versatility in these situations has lead to me growing into a complete professional with many different talents, qualities, and features. Thank you for your interest, consideration, and time. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Respectfully,

Stormy Jackson
