Orthodontic Assistant Cover Letter Example2 min read

Despite many people telling you otherwise, cover letter formats do make a difference. Where you write the date and how you address the hiring manger show that you bothered to spend time on your cover letter. Action openings and closes are important to the success of your cover letter as well. It is all very well to say call me at (111) 111-1111 but if you also write I will call to ask for a convenient date and time for an interview, you are displaying your proactive side. Employers like proactive people.

A no action close hands the control of the interview process over to the employer. It suggests that you will wait tight until you are called for an interview – this is a very weak way to close a cover letter. There are several different ways to write an action close including:

• I will email to you in a few days to coordinate a time to meet…
• I look forward to speaking to you personally and will call you…
• I would welcome a personal interview to discuss my qualifications…
• I hope to play an active role in your company…
• I will contact you within a few days to determine if you can meet with me…

Notice the preemptive quality of all these closes? That is what you need to use. Something like this:
