What is included in a cover letter signature depends on whether you are sending or uploading a cover letter document or using an email message as your cover letter.

Cover Letter Document Signatures

When you send a paper cover letter or upload a document to a job site to apply for a job you need less information in your signature than in an email message, because the heading of your cover letter includes your contact information.

In this case, you can simply include an appropiate closing and your name:

Closing, (sample closings)

Handwritten Signature (mailed letter)

FirstName LastName

Email Cover Letter Signatures
When you are sending email cover letters, it's important to include contact information so the hiring manager can easily see how to reach you.
