I am applying for the position you have available. I can offer a valuable mix of enthusiasm and proficiency. This sounds like it is the perfect match for my skills, experience, and interests.

In my position as Office Manager of a construction company, my focus was on customer satisfaction and service, change orders, billings, collections and scheduling jobs. Request and review bids from subcontractors, verify insurance, bonds and licensing. Maintained all operational records, A/P, A/R, and Payroll, in QuickBooks, insurance requirements, and SAIF files for company.

My professional background has equipped me with solid practical skills, combined with a deep understanding of GAAP and current office practices. I have an associate’s degree in accounting. I am very outgoing and thoroughly enjoy working with people. I am familiar with the most current Microsoft Office Suite, and Quick Books. I believe I am a good fit for your position and would like the opportunity to become a valued member of your team.

I have enclosed my resume and look forward to discussing how I can meet your needs. Thank You…..
