Dear Recruiter: 
Hello! I am very interested in the position that you are currently recruiting for and I have attached my resume for your perusal. 
At the end of 2009 I moved back to my hometown of Pueblo, CO. while my husband (a journey electrician foreman) built two power plants in the area. He is now building the new Cherokee Power Plant in Denver, which is will take five years. We have now permanently relocated back to the Denver area.  
During my time in Pueblo I worked as a seasonal tax accountant, volunteered with a neighborhood organization, and completed my MBA. Additionally, I have a BSBA in Accounting from the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs. I have extensive work experience in accounting, finance, and operations management.  
Based upon my education and work experience, I believe that I would be a perfect candidate for the position. I would appreciate the opportunity to discuss my qualifications for the positions and I can be reached at […] (C). Thank you for your time and consideration. 
Best regards, 
Selina Soderlind
