Dear Ms. Osullivan,
I am applying for the position of Bill Collector with ERI Financial Services. I saw your advertisement and knew that I have the qualities you are looking for in an applicant.
Being a Bill Collector is not a glamorous job but it is one that I am good at and I would like to share my skills and years of experience with your company. I understand the reasons behind collecting debts and that this process is needed in order to keep cost and interest rates down for everyone.
I have the research skills needed to locate the debtor and then the ability to make contact in an attempt to collect the debts that have not been paid. I will make the necessary phone calls and send out the paperwork needed to inform the debtor that you are seeking payment and action will be taken if arrangements are not made.
I can talk with debtors and inform them of all their options to repay the debt and try to work out something that is suitable for both the debtor and your company. However, if an agreement cannot be reached, then I will inform the debtor of the legal action that will be taken and when it will begin.
I have a great track record for recovering many debts that previous companies were ready to give up on and write off. I have included a few references for you to contact in my resume. I am sure that I am the best applicant for this job.
You can reach me by calling (555)-555-5555 and I hope to meet with your soon.
