Cover Letter: Final Paragraph Connects You with Employer


The final paragraph of a cover letter should fill in the blank in this sentence, says Deborah Brown-Volkman in an article on Quintessential Careers: “Here’s my contact information…” “In this paragraph, tell the employer that you are excited and looking forward to the interview,” Brown-Volkman says, “Make note of your contact information and state what next steps will be. If you will wait for their reply, tell them that. If you will be following up, tell them when they can expect to hear from you. Whatever you put down, make sure you do what you say will you do.” Then, it’s up to you… An ideal cover letter can get you the interview. What you do once you get there is in your hands.
