Application for the position of Cost Accountant

Dear Hiring Managers,

From your company website, I have seen that you are currently looking to fulfill the Cost Accountant role within your organization. As an experienced and well-educated professional, I am not only confident that I would successfully execute the job and all associated duties but I also believe that I could become a great and valuable addition to your team.

After the completion of my degree in Accounting & Finance at the College of William & Mary in Williamsburg, VA, I joined the Chenega Corporation, Inc. at the Cost Accountant position. There, I was given the responsibility for competing a detailed cost analysis and the development and implementation of new and more efficient profit maximization plans and strategies. Besides that, I:

  • Collaborated and worked closely with colleagues on the improvement of existing accounting processes and procedures in order to decrease unnecessary expenses.
  • Prepared profit and loss statements, maintained and managed confidential documents and records, and resolved any accounting problematic issues.
  • Assisted in the payroll management and reviewed all financial statements and reports to ensure the accuracy of all data.
  • Worked on the development of a new company costing system and provided beneficial support to Finance Managers and Executives.

For constantly performing great work and increasing profitability by 15% within just two years, I was awarded Employee of the Month. In addition, I am a Certified Cost Accountant possessing a strong attention to detail and accuracy and well-developed analytical and critical thinking skills which are necessary for the role. Finally, I am a native French speaker with a proficiency in English and Spanish and the ability to use multiple industry software programs, including Freshbooks, Zoho Expense, FreeAgent, and QuickBooks at an expert level. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you need any other information on my qualifications.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Kind regards,

Maxime Bourcier
