Finance department is an important section of an organization. It controls and manages the financial resources to help the organization achieve profit. It is a specialized field, and a degree in finance is required. You can start a career by completing an internship with any company or a firm. After your internship, you can apply for a finance assistant job. For this, you will need to know how to draft a finance assistant cover letter.
The letter can be written by any fresher or experienced person. Though the format and tone of the letter will remain the same, the information on the body section will change. A fresher must highlight his qualification in finance and internship experience. Any additional certificate of training will also work in driving the employer's interest in your favor. Experienced personnel must highlight their skills and the duties handled for the past and current employers. Follow these sample cover letters depending on your experience.

Subject: Application for the position of Finance Assistant
Dear Mr. White,
If sales and marketing team spins revenue for an organization, then finance department offers them the resources to make it possible. This understanding I have gained after serving for five-year as finance assistant. Since I came to know about a job opening similar to my position through known resources, I just need to make the most out of this opportunity and see myself working for Pack & Go Associations.
What makes my career a unique is the opportunity I got to serve two different types of industries – hospital and hotel. And the common thing in both these workplaces were customer service. I have handled clerical and administrative duties in both these employment. In addition, my qualification in Finance Administration and Statistics have helped me in executing responsibilities of the finance department up to the mark.
I am thorough with the latest accounting principles, running reports, verifying and analyzing financial data, and offer assistance in the preparation of payroll. I can greet and receive clients, take and pass on their messages to respective department, do filing, schedule appointments, and perform my duties without any supervision.
Because of my abilities in handling all clerical and administrative duties of the finance department, I see myself as the perfect candidate for the finance assistant position. I would appreciate if I am called for an interview. Thank you for your consideration.
