Created by Josie

Looking to apply for a Senior Controller position and struggle with writing an eye-catching cover letter?

No worries, Josie got your back. Here is one example of what Josie generated to a job at Cisco.

Dear [name of hiring manager],

I am excited to apply for the Controller role in the Global Accounting and Reporting Team (GAR) within the Corporate Controller Group (CCG). As an experienced accounting operations professional with a passion for financial policy and compliance, I believe that this role is the perfect fit for me. My character and skills align with the responsibilities outlined in the job ad, and I am confident that I can make a meaningful contribution to the team.

With over 8 years of experience working in the Big 4 and international environments, I have developed a deep understanding of accounting principles, statutory compliance, and tax management. My ability to quickly interpret local requirements and valid treatments for both local and US GAAP purposes has helped me to prepare accurate financial statements and manage relationships with tax authorities. Moreover, my experience working with cross-functional teams and resolving issues collaboratively will enable me to be an effective controller.

In this role, I will use my expertise to ensure accurate end-to-end entity figures and collaborate with process leads and P&L managers to maintain compliance with Cisco policies. I will also manage relationships with tax compliance partners and act as a key escalation point for issue resolution. With my strong business acumen, communication skills, and ability to work with others in formal processes, I am confident that I can help the team achieve its goals.

Thank you for considering my application. I look forward to the opportunity to contribute to the success of the GAR team within CCG.
