When you apply for a job through email with an attached resume, incorporate your cover letter in the body of the email.  Add your accomplishments that relate to the job description you're applying for.  Also, take this opportunity to sell yourself by briefly explaining the key differentiators that separate you from other candidates.  In today's market, employers are receiving hundreds of resumes so you want to make it easy for the reviewer to see why you are a better fit and stand out from the crowd.  Do not add your cover letter as an attachment.  This approach creates added steps for the employer which increases the chance that they may not take the time to even open it.

Good Luck
Karl Glatt
