Writing for a business audience is usually quite different than writing in the humanities, social sciences, or other academic disciplines. Business writing strives to be crisp and succinct rather than evocative or creative; it stresses specificity and accuracy. This distinction does not make business writing superior or inferior to other styles. Rather, it reflects the unique purpose and considerations involved when writing in a business context.
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.
