Contact information in a cover letter

Where is the best place to put contact information in a cover letter? Should I include it in the heading or in the closing? I've seen both. I sort of like the whole "If you have further questions, please feel free to contact me via the information listed below" and then sign my name and have phone and email. Is there one that is recommended over the other?

Traditionally the contact information on a cover letter would always go in the heading. Cover letters began as just that, "letters", so it was important that the employer had your full name and mailing address featured very prominently on the cover letter. These days things are a little less formal, with most cover letters being submitted either electronically through a job search site or via email.

Personally, I think including your name and contact information in the header is the most professional way to go about it. If you are applying for a smaller company or want to be a little less formal than I do not think it would be too much of a Faux Pas to include the information after the end. However, if you plan on including your mailing address, I would recommend that you include ALL your contact information in the header 100% of the time. If you only plan on including your phone number and email it would be acceptable to include it in closing.

However, you could also say, "If you have further questions, please feel free to contact me." If the person hiring is competent enough to be a hiring manager then they are obviously competent enough to find your contact information on a cover letter. I would say keep it short and sweet, the less words you use when writing a cover letter, the better.

GailLauth5 and stcl333 discussed some useful pointers on ways to provide contact information in a cover letter.

Traditionally, we are used to providing our contact information at the top of the cover letter. But, the times have changed quite a bit in the recent years. Many employers like Google are no longer insisting you to stick to the traditional way of resume writing or cover letter writing. As such, you have the flexibility to show your personality in your cover letter. But, this decision has to be based on the nature of the firm. If you are applying for a position in a traditional firm, make sure you provide the contact information at the very top of the cover letter in a prominent manner.

I agree with the above. I put my contact info in the header. It really should be the first thing the employer sees when viewing your cover letter. While I agree with Suvi on the flexibility now in cover letters, I would say to stick with the traditional way of doing them. After all, you want it to look as professional as possible.

Concern about Amtrak security has been mounting since the 2004 bombings of commuter trains in Madrid that killed 191 people. Trains also have been bombed in London, where 52 people were killed in a series of blasts in 2005, most of them on subway trains, and in Mumbai, where 200 people were killed in 2006 on commuter trains. Russia also has had several bombings on subway, commuter and longdistance trains.
People who are selected for screening and refuse will not be allowed to board, and their tickets will be refunded.
The teams will show up unannounced at stations and set up baggagescreening areas in front of boarding gates. Officers will randomly pull people out of line and wipe their bags with a special swab that is then put through a machine that detects explosives. If the machine detects anything, officers will open the bag for inspection.
