If there aren't any specific instructions from the employer, you have a few more options when it comes to your email content. You may want to use the email body as your cover letter. If so, remember to study cover letter examples specific to your industry. While it's always important to keep cover letters brief, being concise is absolutely vital when you're writing your cover letter in the body of your email.
If you would rather include both your cover letter and resume as attachments to your message, keep the text of your email simple. Include a salutation, using the hiring manager's name if possible. You can reference where you found the job ad and what attachments you're including. Close with a signature that includes your full name and contact information.
