How do I write a cover letter for a resume?

I am currently applying (through the website )for a Ross Store that is in progress of opening in the fallowing week or months .How do write a cover letter given the information and questions below ..... 1. I have been employed by a Temporary labor recruitment agency for about 6-7 months and I am not very enthusiastic about staying there as it is a unstable dead end job .Do I have to state or explain this ? If so , how detailed would I have to be and what is the best way to explain my reasons for wanting to switch jobs . 2. I am just 9-10 months fresh out of high and my only experience prior to my current job is working as a teacher assistant .So If I cant rely on my experience to be considered for the job what can I do ? 3.I found out they are hiring through a sign posted out side the store and located a open position as a retail associate on their website . I am also thinking of applying for a position as a Store protection specialist but I am not sure if applying at the same store for multiple positions is a correct thing to do . 4.Is " to whom it may concern" a proper way address the letter if I don't know the person who will be reading it ? I really need some help ! I would appreciate it greatly if someone could write a sample format or simply give some tips on how I should write my cover letter in a proper way .
