How do I write a general cover letter for a job application website?

I want to post my resume on a website that has postings for numerous jobs that I might be qualified for. This site allows you to post your resume and one cover letter and then you can click on the particular jobs that you want to apply for. All of my previous job applications have been targeted at a particular position --and I worded the cover letters accordingly. How do I write a cover letter that adequately shows my strengths without targeting a particular job/position or employer?
