Here’s what the last paragraph of a cover letter should include:
- A summary of how your qualifications will benefit the company
- A request for an interview to prompt the hiring manager to contact you
- Your email address and phone number so the hiring manager doesn’t need to search for them
- A “thank you” to the hiring manager for reading your cover letter
Here’s an example of what you should include in the last paragraph of a cover letter:
I’m confident that my proven ability to lead sales teams and increase profit in my current and past roles will benefit your company. Please reach me at (123) 456-7890 or firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an interview. Thank you for taking the time to review my cover letter, and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
