Here's a cover letter sample that uses one of my favorite techniques: the "call and response." It's hard to miss, but I'll point it out anyway.
In the body of the letter, Ricardo (not his real name) has two groups of bullet point statements. The first is JOB REQUIREMENTS, which is the "call" from the employer. These statements were taken word-for-word from the job posting.

The second group of statements is under the heading MY QUALIFICATIONS. That's Ricardo's "response" to the employer's call. Point by point he responds to each requirement with wording that is different from what the employer wrote. And then he added one more relevant qualification.
This call-and-response technique is a great way to pass the initial screening of the recruiter.
