    I don't think you can achieve excellence in your goals. You either achieve your goals or you don't.

    All in all, it looks pretty good to me.

    It is not a good idea to include that in your resume. It can't help. It will only emphasize your lack of experience.

    Thanks RonBee.

    One more thing, should i mention list of courses i have taken in cover letter since i have already mentioned it in my Resume. Instead, i was thinking about adding one paragraph, talking about my accounting experience(which i do not have except for the courses) or you know something that relates to being an accountant. You think you can help me with that.

    let me know.

    thanks,

    Ahmed

    The cover letter is basically for introducing yourself. List the courses you have taken in your resume.
