Overview:

While submitting a job application for a position of courier, you have an edge that you do not require any specific education or qualifications to become a courier. Therefore, it will be just your resume which can make you stand-out. Employers just tend to look for excellent English and math skills, which you would require to manage related paperwork and for following directions.

In a resume for courier, postal carrier or despatch rider position, you should highlight your skills and knowledge along with any experience in collecting packages, documents and messages, and carry them to customers. Mention your enthusiasm to work in all kinds of areas such as larger towns and cities and cross-country deliveries.

Job Requirements:

You would just require a valid driving license of the state along with a good driving record. If you seek work as a motorcycle courier, you would usually require your own motorbike. As a motorcycle or bicycle courier, you would typically work inside city centers and nearby areas. If you work as a van courier, you might have to spend long periods away from home town, because a number of companies deliver goods from corner to corner the country.  A basic knowledge of vehicle maintenance will be a plus.

Tip: Send this Courier Cover Letter along with your job application and resume.
