It is important to know how to end a cover letter in a professional manner when applying for jobs. A good cover letter should consist of three to four paragraphs seemlessly woven together. To fully understand how to close a cover letter, you need to first understand how a letter should be structured in its entirety as illustrated in the example letter below. The first paragraph is your opportunity to affirm your suitability for the job and explain why you are a suitable candidate. You should make the employer understand that the job is a natural progression (stepping stone) for you. The middle section of the letter is your opportunity to mention your most recent roles, highlighting your achievements and skills either acquired or honed in those roles. So far so good - the task now is how to close the letter in a professional manner. By this stage, you should have little else to mention other than to end the letter in a professional way. The way to do this is simply to re-iterate your suitability for the position. As in the first paragraph, you should also state the reasons why you feel you are a suitable candidate.
