Question about the closing paragraph of a cover letter? Topic: What employers look for in cover letters
June 16, 2019 / By Indiana
Question: I have a book about finding your dream job/work, and it suggests that the closing paragraph of your cover letter should be something like - "I would very much like to speak with you about this opportunity and how you can use my expertise. Please expect my call on Monday, December 6, to arrange a convenient time to discuss that. I look forward to speaking with you about opportunities at ABC Company." Is this too aggressive? What do employers/HR people think of this? Thanks.

You want to re-emphasize your interest in the opportunity, your confidence that you can contribute, and your gratitude for the reader’s time. You also want to say you’ll contact the recipient on a certain date (allow several days to a week). I hope this helps :-)
