I read a lot of cover letters with great lists of qualifications. They are so generic that they can be used for any job opening. In fact, if I am not mistaken, they are being used by a candidate for every job opening to which they are applying! In fact, there is no mention of the job duties, title, or what they can provide to an employer.

Think about how your skills will benefit your future employer. Provide real life examples of how you tangibly and quantifiably assisted the company in growth, reduction of costs, profitability, or efficiency. People tend to hire those who produce positive and documentable outcomes. A picture is worth a thousand words. Consider your example the picture you are painting. Highlight examples in interviews as well. It will set you apart from your competition!
