    Please help me with a nice closing sentence for a job application

    Please help me.
    I am writing a cover letter, and i think I have done it fairly nice, but i don't have a closing sentence yet.
    Normally I know what to write in Dutch, but this has to be in English because it's for a Japanese firm.
    I wanted it to be something that says that I would like to discuss the letter and resume, or the mutual opportunities, during an interview, or something.

    Any ideas?

    Thanx in advance for your help!

    How about:

    "I would like to schedule an interview to discuss these mutual opportunities further."

    and finish it with

    "Domo arigato gozaimasu."

    Thank you for the input, guys. Much appreciated. Sometimes you just think about it too much and overlook the obvious.
    I will save the letter I have now and look over it tomorrow morning and e-mail it.
    I will let you know if it will be a hit or not.

    I always like using, "I look forward to discussing this opportunity with you in further detail."

    Basically says you want an interview, but not blatantly .

    Thanks.
    Last minute I changed my mind and went with your suggestion.
    This is also what I usually use in Dutch so that seemed the most natural thing to say.

    I e-mailed the letter and resume this morning and I still haven't heard anything
    I guess I'm a bit impatient...

    You could have added " I am willing to work as an intern without pay for the first six months so you can get confortable with my performance and see how much I can contribute to the Corporations vision and goals". NOT!
