Resume Writing & Cover Letter Questions

I really want the perquisites that come with the job I'm applying for. Should I tell them what I want in my cover letter?

No. Don't attempt to negotiate anything in your cover letter. Don't tell a prospective construction employer that you want the job for the money or the travel perquisites. Just introduce yourself and your suitability to do the job. The rest will come in time, if you get past the construction interview stage.
