Dear Mr. Wilson:

I am interested in being a baggage handler for Cloud Nine. Since the position you advertised on your web site calls for twenty hours per week, I believe this job would suit me well. I go to school part-time and need work that will help support that endeavor.

I am physically strong, able to load and unload suitcases, large boxes, luggage of any size, as well as other baggage such as airfreight, mail, and counter-to-counter packages for aircraft transport.

Baggage handlers are essential to good public relations, a part of the airline industry that I'd like to contribute to.

If you wish to meet me in person to discuss my ability to do this job, please phone me at 695-888-8756 and I'll arrange to come to your office at your convenience any weekday afternoon. Thank you for considering my cover letter.
