Dear Mr. Polish:

I am interested in the Collector position currently available at MBS Collections. As an skilled individual with excellent follow up capabilities and customer service acumen, I am certain that I am the right candidate for this position.

I have worked for five years in a similar capacity at Churlin Collection Services and this experience has instilled in me the capability to manage delinquent accounts payment in a robust manner. My ability to work in a team fostered environment and coinciding experience in collections is sure to make me an asset for your organization. I am comfortable with talking to account holders about their debts in a non threatening manner which ensures paybacks in most cases. My exceptional telephone etiquette and corresponding confidentiality skills make things easier for me when working in a challenging environment.

I am very excited at the prospect of meeting you to further discuss the Collector position and possibility of my joining MBS Collections. I will call you in two weeks to follow up on this application and will be available at (591) 001-1901 if you would like to contact me before that.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
