For most people, one of the hardest parts of applying for a Newspaper Delivery job is writing a cover letter. Unfortunately, we all need to write one sometimes as some people look at it as the most important part of the job application process. This is because while most hiring managers do not bother to read the whole resume, they do usually read the cover letter.
Another reason a cover letter is important is that although the resume will tell the hiring manager what your academic background is and what your experience is, it is the cover letter that will tell him or her what your skills are. And skills are extremely important, for it is through your skills that you can convince the prospective employer that you are the person who should be hired for the job.
So if you want to apply to a newspaper delivery driver position, this sample cover letter may help you:

Dear Mr. Brand:
I am submitting my attached resume in application for the position of Newspaper Delivery. Having worked as a newspaper delivery truck driver for the past 6 years has made me comprehend the ins and outs of the work, and how to solve the problems that always crop up in any job. It has also given me a new respect for the efforts of the people who work so hard to do this work!
During my tenure as a newspaper delivery driver, I have learned a great deal, including how to keep meticulous records of deliveries made, how to keep tight deadlines, and how to review lists of dealers, customers, and drop stations if a change is to be made in the schedule. I have delivered newspapers to dealers, and to transport stations for shipment. I am even something of a mechanic, so I can make emergency repairs to my truck. Friendliness is one of my sharpest skills, so I get along with everyone I need to interact with, which makes it easy for me to obtain additional clientele.
I would like to have a face-to-face meeting with you, which I’m sure, will help you gauge how suitable I am to work for Dyson Newspaper Delivery Services. I will call you soon to get an appointment for interview. Until then, I can be reached at (000) 222-2222 if needed.
Thank you for your time and consideration, and I look forward to hearing from you.
