Sample Payroll Assistant Cover Letter

When writing a payroll assistant cover letter make sure you tell the hiring manager your expertise and experience assisting the payroll examiner to do his or her job: making sure employers comply with laws and regulations governing financial transactions. Such an employee may also help to examine, verify correctness, and establish the authenticity of records. All payroll assistant cover letters that include such specific details are sure to garner attention and result in a meeting for the job hunter.

Mr. Greg Hiram,

Dear Mr. Hiram:

Your posting for a payroll assistant on JobBankUSA.com grabbed my attention and compelled me to write this cover letter and ask for an opportunity to meet you and show you my credentials after three years in the payroll department of Atlas, Inc.

I am now in the market for new employment and was so pleased to know you have an opening for payroll assistants in two of your plants. I would like to be one of them.

In my previous job I helped the payroll examiner make sure employers complied with laws and regulations concerning financial transactions.

If you'd like to meet in person to discuss this position, just name the day and time and I'll arrange to be there. You can reach me afternoons at 888-888-8888 to confirm. Thank you for your time and attention to my cover letter and resume.
