Here's a killer cover letter. Assume there is a picture of an excel chart showing DSO for 3 years with a great downward curve over that time:
This is an Excel file named ?Mountains or Rollercoaster?. It could be, couldn?t it? Not a very good picture though. I guess I?m not a very talented artist.
But I?m not an artist. I?m in Credit and Collections.
What if the picture was a chart of DSO from the first month I started to the present day? I?ve eliminated the Y scale since I do not want to give away company information, so you will have to fill in your own numbers.
The question becomes the following:
How much is one full turn a year worth to your company? What if it were two full turns?
It becomes an interesting question, doesn?t it?
You must admit, too, this is by far the most intriguing cover letter you have ever seen.
