What should be in the body of the cover letter?

Cover Letter Body

The body of your employment cover letter should contain your sales pitch. Use several sentences to cite the specific skills and accomplishments that make you the ideal candidate for the open position.

Elaborate by using brief examples to explain why your unique skills make you the right person for the job. Don't painstakingly list all your wonderful qualities; just stick to the qualities that are relevant to the open position. You'll be able to highlight any additional qualities you have in the interview.
