Customize Your Cover Letter
It is important to customize your cover letter, so it presents your candidacy for employment effectively.

Write a new customized cover letter for each job you apply for.
Save the original version of your cover letter, before you start making changes, so you can go back and start over, if you need to. Also, that way you'll be able to edit your original cover letter when applying for new jobs.
