A cover letter just introduces the resume. Keep it short (just several sentences). Much of the time it will be discarded before everyone involved in the hiring process can see it. It can highlight some salient points in your resume, but your resume should speak for itself.
Yes. No job specific cover letter = you didn’t actually read my job posting and are just spamming resumes. There are HR managers who would disagree, but HR managers are generally useless and I find they get in the way. Cover letter should point out the things in your resume and experience that are pertinent.
The best closing sentence for every cover letter is this: I’m very interested in joining the team at [company name] and look forward to an interview at your convenience. I can be reached at [phone number] between the hours of [hours when you can be contacted]. That’s it.
