Job Resume Cover Letter :
Keep the ball in your court
We are making a good point here. Closing with a promise to call the person receiving your letter has two major advantages for you as a jobsceker.
You can convey to the reader that you are a person who has initiative and follow-through-two critical skills in business.
You keep the ball in your court. Since the next move is up to you, you don't need to sit and wait for a reply. That reality is good for your morale, an important element of ajob search. In addition, your call may increase the probability of your being interviewed,
I think you can reconsider your last sentence, too. Thanking someone for their time and consideration in a letter, before you know they've given you any time or consideration, seems nice but hardly necessary.

"My resume is enclosed. Next week I will contact your office to see if a meeting can be arranged at your convenience, Thank you."

"My resume is enclosed. On November 10, I will contact your office to arrange a meeting to discuss career opportunities for me at Sundance Marketing. "
Some people find it helpful to indicate the date they will call the potential employer. This date is usually between one and two weeks after your letter is mailed. Many people are reluctant to call an employer, so specifying a particular date in your letter reduces the chance that you will put off your call until tomorrow
(and tomorrow and tomorrow).
"I would like the opportunity to meet with you to discuss career possibilities for me at Computer Designs International. A resume highlighting my work experience and academic background is enclosed. I will contact your office next week to arrange a meeting at your convenience. "
The cover letter adds to your attractiveness as a candidate in three ways.
You can give those positive characteristics of greatest interest to a particular employer more prominence in the cover letter than you did in your resume.
Through your cover letter, you can put some of your experiences in a frame of reference that more closely meets the needs of the employer.
New material :
Your cover letter can include material of interest to an employer that would be difficult to present in a resume. Your motivation for wanting to work for that particular company is an example.
