Your awareness of some of the problems with your first letter may come with ideas about what to fix or do better in your next letter. You might also want to read up on cover letter dos and don'ts. Treat your old letter as a first draft and take a moment to identify what you want to change as well as things that you did well. You should also be sure to address the requirements for the position you are now seeking.
Making a fair assessment of your first cover letter can make the process of writing a new letter for a different position easier. Plan what you want to cover and make sure that you proofread and spellcheck the new document. Whether the same or a different hiring manager reviews your application, a prospective employer will appreciate that you took the time to improve your professional presentation.
