Identify the job by title and let the recipient know how you heard about it. Summarize your qualifications for the job, specifically your work experience, activities that show your leadership skills, and your educational background. Ask for an interview, stating where you can be reached and when you will be available. If your prospective employer is located in another city and you plan to visit the area, mention the dates for your trip. If you are applying for a specific job, include any information pertinent to the position that is not included in your resume.
Signing an Uploaded or Mailed Cover Letter. If you're uploading your cover letter to a job site, your signature will simply include a closing and your full name. Place a comma after your close, such as Best, or Sincerely yours, and then put your name on the line below. When you're sending a written letter include a closing, your handwritten signature, and your typed full name. Leave several spaces between the close and your typed name. That way, you'll have room for your signature when you print out the letter. Sign using either blue or black ink.
