If using a cover letter, you need to ensure it's concise and to the point. I see too many cover letters that say the same thing in different ways over and over throughout the content.

Don't use acronyms, unless it's so well known it is common language.

Don't be wordy just to write more words.

Don't write in a paragraph form what your resume contains in a different form.

Do use the cover letter to gain and maintain interest and end with a thank you.

Do make sure what you write in your cover letter is supported in your resume.
