Glassdoor offers up five phrases to close your cover letter that will land that interview, but the one that stood out to us was the simplest:
“I am very excited to learn more about this opportunity and share how I will be a great fit for XYZ Corporation.” Strong cover letter closings are enthusiastic and confident. You want the reader to have the impression you are truly passionate about the position and working for their company. This statement will also illustrate your ability to fit into the company culture and how your personality and work ethic is exactly what they’re looking for.
Closing your cover letter with something like this is more assertive (not aggressive) than a simple “I look forward to hearing from you”. The other closing sentences are variations on the theme.
The only suggestion we find questionable with is the last one, which promises that you’ll call the hiring manager on X date to follow-up and arrange an interview. That might seem overly aggressive for some roles.Hit the link below to check out the full list.
