Re: Accounts Payable (AP) Specialist | Advertised on Monster
Dear Ms. McMillan:
While AP is a back-office function and its importance can easily be overlooked, the way the process is managed could make or break a company. As an AP specialist for a leading automotive parts manufacturer, I ensure efficient processes and workflows are in place to keep vendors happy while maximizing my employer’s bottom line. I am confident that my hands-on approach would add value to your AP team.
My current day-to-day responsibilities as an AP specialist mirror the job responsibilities outlined in your ad. At XYZ Company, I:
- Review invoices for appropriate documentation and approval prior to payment
- Research, reconcile and correct discrepancies on vendor statements
- Process vendor invoices, AP batches and check rebates
- Help plan and execute month-end AP closing processes
Throughout my tenure with XYZ, I have maintained accurate files and documentation; processed invoices and payments on time; and provided first-class service.
One of the keys to successful account management is my ability to build relationships and communicate effectively with vendors, suppliers and distributors. If an account issue arises, I expedite resolution to maintain professional, trusting relationships.
My qualifications include an associate’s degree in accounting; proficiency in Great Plains, Concur and Ariett invoice management an AP systems; expertise in Excel; knowledge of SOX and GAAP standards; and agility in handling high-volume workloads.
May we schedule a meeting? You can reach me at (555) 555-5555. Thank you for your time.
