The employer with either be familiar with electronic signatures or not. If t are then it is likely t will accept the letter without question, if t are not then t will probably be intrigued and it may be a good conversation starter in the interview. Few employers are seeking technologically backward candidates and if you do a good job of explaining the advantages of electronic signature then it may reflect well on your communications ability. You ought to mention that the electronically signed cover letter is actually much better than a hard copy alternative because it proves who signed what, when and where and the document is tamper-proof which helps reduce the probability of fraud.

Write on PDF: All You Need to Know

Also, I would mention that I use the same format, date, time, business/organization name as you, so you will know what I wrote, and it will be easier to read and understand if you understand the format. I will also point out that your company is not the only company to use electronic signatures. Your boss (or HR staff if you choose to use their help) is likely using electronic signatures too, and it is a good conversation starter to discuss whether the company you are applying to uses electronic signatures or not. The best way to find out is to do a quick search over at Problems using the keywords for electronic signature, and make sure that the company you are applying to use only electronic signatures, or if it uses both it is probably using more than one. Finally, make some phone calls to your relevant HR departments and ask.
