To Whom It May Concern:

Short first sentence - mention the company name and express that you're genuinely interested in the position. Demonstrate that you've thoroughly read the job description, understand the requirements, and believe that you're a good fit for the position.

Next, one or two paragraphs that highlight your relevant experiences and skills. Tying them in with the requirements of the position is best. Keep it concise, the cover letter should be 3/4 page or less.

In the final paragraph, reiterate that you're very interested in the position and mention the company name again. Describe how hiring you will benefit the employer. Thank them for their time and consideration, say that you're looking forward to speaking with them more about the opportunity (in person if applicable), and list the phone number they can reach you at.
