Closing: When you're writing a business letter or email message it's important to close your letter in a professional manner, so you're letter, in its entirety, is well_written and professional. Signature: When you are sending a paper letter, finish the letter with your signature, handwritten, followed by your typed name. If this is an email, simply include your typed name. Finally, don't forget to spell check and proofread your letter before you send it. Again, ask a family member, friend or colleague to review it for you. It's always good for another pair of eyes to take a look because it's hard to catch our own mistakes.
Signatures if You're Emailing. If you are sending your cover letter or inquiry letter by email, end with a polite sign_off followed by your full name. You do not need to sign a cover letter that is being sent electronically. Write out your full name in the same font as the rest of the letter, and there's no need for italics or a handwriting font. The formatting here is very similar to an uploaded cover letter. However, emails do not contain a header with your phone number or other contact information. It's a good idea to include these details in your closing paragraph or after your typed signature. That makes it easy for the employer or networking contact to get in touch with you.
