Cover Letter Structure — Fourth (or Closing) Paragraph:
Focus of paragraph: “What Steps I’ll Take to Make Sure We Talk Further about My Qualifications.”
Ask for an interview. Being proactive shows initiative.
Tell the employer you will make contact within a specific period of time (such as a week 10 days two weeks). Then be sure to carry out the follow-up action you said you would.
It’s also a good idea to tell the employer in the final paragraph how to reach you during business hours.
