I'm actively looking for a job for the first time in awhile, and whenever I sit down to write a cover letter and update my resume it's like my job application skills stopped developing in 1985 (nevermind that I wasn't old enough to apply for jobs then)

When applying for a job, how do I write a cover letter that doesn't sound contrived, and phony? The guides I've found don't seem all that helpful, especially considering most of the positions I'm applying for are entry level. General tips for writing a cover letter?

Does anyone have a recommendation for a job posting/administration application that uses either ASP or ColdFusion? I'm looking to implement something that will allow users to search jobs and submit their resume and will allow the HR department to post, edit, and delete jobs.
