Dearest Sir


With reference in your advertisement which is published in The Himalayan Times in 10th January 2014, I will like to apply for the post with Accountant Officer, as I desire to be employ in a larger firm than that in which I’m working at present.


As regards my qualifications I passed in the SLC Examinations on 2065 BS from Little Angels School Lalitpur. Then I passed in 10+2 in 2067. Finally I passed in BBS in 2070 from the Shankhar Dev Campus Kathmandu.


Since 2068, I have been working as Junior Accountant in  B graded bank, Kathmandu where I’ve had practice and experience in all type of work expected of a accountant. I’m also computer-literate.


I am 25 year old and I enjoy good health. Salary of about Rs 15000 month would induce me to change my present position. My present employers has no objection to my desire to improve my prospects. I’m also enclosing herewith some of my testimonial, which may be of some helps to assess my abilities.


If I am appointed as Accountant, I assure you, Sir, that I will do my bests to satisfy with you with my works and conduct.





Yours sincerely
