In order to get a job as a courier, you just need 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.

In a resume for courier, postal carrier or dispatch 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.
