Letter of recommendation for accounting jobs helps the prospective employers to elude the difficulties of reaching a reference. This cover letter is often requested by the employer during the application process or when applying for an acceptance to an academic award. The accounting cover letter for recommendation should not exceed more than one page and should comprise of an opening, body and conclusion. Let us get a brief idea of these three parts of the recommendation letter.
- Opening: Address the letter to the name provided by the person whom you are recommending along with appropriate title such as Scholarship Selection Committee, Human Resource manager, Recruiting Manger etc. Describe how you know the person and the context upon which your evaluation about the person is based. Include the designation and the period of employment of the person with the company.
- Body: Provide specific information of the person based on your observations. Focus on several aspects of the person like skills, attitudes, personal attributes and growth as well as his/her performance and contribution to the company. Specify the area of recommendation instead of generalizing the information.
- Conclusion: The conclusion should briefly summarize the positive points of the person given in the body of the letter and clearly state that you recommend the candidate for the job profile the person is trying to apply.

He use to prepare and processes purchase orders, invoices, check requests and contract payments. He has consistently impressed me by his performance and attitude towards his work.

He possesses great listening and interviewing skills necessary to extract information from our clientele while performing financial assessments. His writing skills have enabled him to compose quality correspondence. His analytical skills to diagnose problems and devising solutions have helped the company a lot in increasing the production. He has also proven his ability to remain calm during frenetic situations.
