So...
...What are you waiting for?
Date
This is where the purpose of the letter goes. Talk about how you heard about the position. If you spoke to someone about the position at, for instance, a career fair talk about that now. This is the prefect place for you to show off all of your networking within the company.
This is where you talk about why you should be hired for this position. Talk about your qualifications and experiences that you could bring and apply to the new position. This is the perfect place to take something from your resume and fully explain it. Remember that when you talk about your experiences and qualifications, you want to bring them back to the company and why those experiences and qualifications make you the perfect pick for the company!

If you want to break your experiences down into two paragraphs, feel free to do so. This additional paragraph can help you to organize your experiences into two clear categories.
