Each cover letter for rural carrier associate position must be different from the other. There is a reason for this – a solid one. Employers have enough ordinary in their lives. The need extraordinary from a candidate who promises to give them extraordinary service. Keeping this in mind, it is imperative that you write your cover letter with much precision and hard work.
Cover letters are not optional – when you send your resume to apply for a job, a cover letter is always expected. Upon not finding one, the hiring manager has the right to dismiss your resume as a nuisance. Don’t let this happen to your resume. Always send in a cover letter to protect its reputation.

Dear Mr. Cooper:
Your advertisement for a full time Rural Carrier Associate position piqued my interest especially due to the routes that you mentioned in it. I would like to provide you the benefit of my expertise in a rural carrier associate capacity, since I have specifically worked as one in the German Valley and Pearl City regions.
Not only am I experienced in delivering mail to these areas, I am also trained in various other areas of mail delivery, including mail sorting and clubbing, stamping, and handling COD deliveries. In addition to this, I am well-versed in driving and maintaining vans and trucks for deliveries, and correctly mapping routes using both standard maps, and complex GPS systems.
In my present place of work, I have a reputation for delivering all mail on time which has earned me the title of eager beaver. I am positive that you can do with someone who has my experience, and I am willing to show you what else I am capable of in a professional capacity, in a personal meeting. I will call you soon to arrange it.
