Most people think that when they write a cover letter, they should list everything they have done in the past. But that’s not true, because you’ve done all that in your resume. You’ve already listed your experience and talked about your achievements. You have basically said everything you’ve done in the past. So it does not make sense that you put all this again in the covering letter.
In essence, a cover letter is not about your past. It is all about what you can do for the prospective company You need to write your accomplishments in a way that how will these accomplishments will help you work productively in future.
