While a strong closing paragraph on your cover letter can be a powerful tool to leave a lasting impression on a hiring manager, there is no specific requirement for an ending or special section at the end of a resume.

A resume is a straightforward and concise document that lists your professional experiences, skills, and qualifications. Its primary purpose is to highlight your qualifications and grab the attention of the hiring manager, not to provide an in-depth personal statement.

However, a well-written cover letter can help you stand out from other candidates and provide additional context for your resume. Here are a few examples of ways to close a cover letter:

  • Express Gratitude: Thank the hiring manager for considering your application and express your excitement about the opportunity to join the company.
  • Emphasize Your Passion: Reiterate your passion for the industry and the role, and explain why you would be a valuable addition to the team.
  • Request an Interview: End your cover letter by asking for an interview, indicating that you would be available at a specific time or willing to schedule an interview at their convenience.

If you need further help with creating a professional resume and cover letter, consider using a resume template. Templates can provide a structure and guidance to ensure your document is well-organized and visually appealing. At you can find a variety of ATS-friendly resume templates to choose from.
