Billing Clerk Resume Cover Letter

A sample cover letter for billing clerk job.

A billing clerk resume cover letter should basically highlight the candidate's familiarity with calculations, transactions, POS applications, bookkeeping, and other administrative and clerical skills, while focusing on basic accounting skills and their transferable skills. Generally, you can apply for the position of a billing clerk if you have completed your high school or if you are a diploma holder. So, it is not really essential to focus much on your academic details, although you are required to mention it in your cover letter.

Following are the essential points to keep in mind while writing a billing clerk cover letter:

  • Keep your cover letter to one page only, so as to facilitate the reader's comfort
  • Do not explain your professional qualifications in detail
  • Do not use any Don'ts in your cover letter, try not to construct any sentences depicting a negative meaning
  • You need not include a subject line for your cover letter, since your introduction takes care of it
  • If you are being referred by someone, make sure you include the name of your referrer before your introduction
  • Be precise and concise while highlighting your skills, relating them to your education or your previous employment
  • Take care not to prepare a generic cover letter, which would lack the personal touch and is likely to be ignored
  • Mention the fact that you have enclosed your resume, where you have included the details of your previous job description and academic details
  • Keep your resume as well as the cover letter technical; make sure you avoid repetition of information so that they complement each other
  • Maintain a steady flow throughout the letter, so as to keep your reader successfully engaged
  • Include a sentence or two as to what you will do to offer your contribution for the establishment's growth
  • Finally, thank the reader for his/her consideration in your application
