You have your resume and now it's time to focus on your cover letter. But why should you bother with one? Your resume is intended to lay out the facts, but your cover letter is meant to convey more personality. The cover letter is your first introduction to the person who may hire you, and its goal should be to make you as memorable as possible, in a good way.

How do you write an Accounts and Finance cover letter?

A cover letter details why you’re the best candidate for the job you’re applying for. For accounting grads, it’s an opportunity to outline your unique experience or area of interest (management accounting, forensics etc). Assuming everyone else applying is equally qualified with the same or similar degree, your cover letter is your chance to argue your case about why you’re a strong match with a company’s values and behavioral expectations i.e. why you’re an accounting rock star who will be an asset to any team they join. For this reason, a great cover letter talks as much about the company you’re applying for as it does about yourself. This is your first chance to show that you have read and understood the job description and considered how you might be able to fulfill the role.

What to include in your cover letter?

  • The name of the company, the hiring manager (if you know it), and the specific role to which you’re applying.
  • A personal introduction to you and your suitability for the role. A cover letter shouldn’t just be a copy of your CV. It needs to specifically address the requirements of the job and give a small indication of how you intend to fulfill them (both with your professional skills and your personal charm).
  • The reasons for your interest in the job and/or company to which you’re applying. This is a good time to show that you’ve done your research. Talk about what specifically interests you about accounting and perhaps link it back to work the organization is doing. If insolvency is your thing, discuss mock cases you did at college/university and talk about how you drew on Company A or B for inspiration.
  •  List your skills and experience and explain how they fulfill the requirements of the job.
