Finding the right balance is important in loadmaster cover letter writing. Making your cover letter word-heavy is not going to get you the job. You need to keep a balance. If your cover letter is only aimed at what you have done, you are not helping the employer decide in your favor. If it is aimed at impressing the employer by reiterating his wants, well, your cover letter is lost in translation!
Writing phrases like “I would love to be considered” or “I am eager to apply” make employers think you are begging for a job. Showing your excitement for a position is important but not if it will make you come across as a pre-teen on his first date! Professionalism is important. Choice of words is even more so. Using tones that are eager-verging-on-desperation can make you come across as an unqualified individual. Keep a balance here as well. Show enthusiasm but not desperation.
On the flip side, it is important to sell, sell, and sell! Cover letters are designed to sell you as a viable candidate for a position and need to be enthusiastic. You need to appear confident but a salesy tone can quickly overshadow your qualifications and make you seem a bore. Refrain from portraying this attitude at all costs!

Dear Mr. Torres:
My career direction has always been very clear. The hustle bustle of airports gives me a great high – a kick that I need to perform my job well. Instead of the obvious path of working as a flight attendant, I chose to work as a loadmaster because of my passion.
My recent move from Fort Wayne, IN to Chicago, IL is not coincidental – it was a planned move. Serendipity is that I managed to move just in time for new openings for a loadmaster position at the Chicago Airport. As part of your team, you will find out that I have an unmatched ability to direct ground crews in loading and unloading of cargo with special attention to space maximization during cargo distribution. This alone earned me the title of “perfectionist” which has been a great force in encouraging me to be even more meticulous.
At my previous workplace, I was responsible for introducing Safe Inflight Cargo Management, which reduced the chances of terrorism-associated incidents, concerning the inflight baggage area. Going the extra mile is my forte. And I would like to provide you with this benefit as well.
Please contact me at (333) 333-3333 if you are interested in knowing more about me, although I do intend to call you on Monday to set up an interview date and time.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
