Hiring authorities come across so many cover letters in a day that they often do not know what to make of them. The good ones are always set aside and pondered upon. The not so good ones are usually binned.
To make sure that the latter situation does not prevail, it is imperative to make sure that your cover letter is written in a profound manner.
Hiring managers do not have a lot of time on their hands, and they want to pick up the best individual there is for a job. What is written in a cover letter helps immensely.
A good cover letter is one that has at least 85% of information that a hiring manager is expecting to see in it. This can be managed through you making sure that your read the job description outline that a hiring manager has provided in a job advert. Here is a cover letter sample for you to go through for reference:

Mr. Anthony Taylor
Human Resource Manager
499 Pine Road
Colonial Beach, VA 76412
Dear Mr. Taylor:
Asset protection is an area that I have worked in extensively in a corporate capacity. Over 10 years of experience as an asset protection investigator, followed by substantial exposure to creating and implementing security SOPs, I believe that I am a good choice to hire at this position at Akorn Inc.
To make the hiring decision as easy as possible, I have tailored my resume to your needs, as best as I could. Right at the top of the first page of my resume, you will find 4 asset protection capabilities which I would like to put at your disposal as soon as I am hired. Backing them up are 10 contributions that I have made to my employers in this role, the most weighty being unearthing of a major internal leak, which could have led to colossal damage if it had been left untouched.
Conducting thorough physical security screenings of all persons and personal belongings exiting the premises, is an area that I am exceptionally well-versed in. As you go through my resume, I hope a central thought stands out: I go beyond just solving asset protection issues in areas assigned to me.
But any resume, no matter how well-customized it is, is no match for a face to face meeting. I will contact you soon to provide you with a more profound view of my candidature. If you need to reach me in the interim, please feel free to give me a buzz on the number given below.
Thank you for your consideration and I look forward to hearing from you.
