Samples of cover letters for a rural carrier with no experience

If you have zero experience and you’re looking to start a job in your specific industry, you can get the attention of job recruiters and hiring managers by including a well-written cover letter for a fresher level with your resume even with limited experience. When writing a cover letter with zero experience, these are some of the important things to include in your letter:

  • Mention your fresh knowledge. Use your recent learning experiences to your advantage; an employer might be more willing to hire you if they know you can help their business acclimate to new technologies or practices.
  • Express your energy and enthusiasm. It shows the potential motivation you will bring to a job as a fresh college graduate.
  • Check your grammar and proofread your letter. It is a way of showing employers your ability to write comprehensive, error-free messages.
  • The first step is addressing the employer with a formal salutation. For example, “Dear/Hello (name of the recipient).” If you do not know the name of the recipient, you can refer to them as the hiring manager.
  • The next step is to state the position you are applying for and how you found the opening. 
  • Make a brief statement about why you’re interested in the position.
  • Since you are a recent graduate, it would help to emphasize your college coursework, internships, and other experiences that show your employability.
  • Ensure your qualifications are similar to the job position. 
  • Conclude your letter with a forward-looking statement. For example, “I look forward to 

discussing the position with you further.”

“Dear Steven Ames,

Hello! I’m excited to be applying for the Assistant Rural Carrier position with USPS. I’m very proud of my rural community and love the idea of interacting with and serving them every day, and I know I would treat this position with the level of respect it deserves. As a new member of the workforce, I’m excited to begin my journey with USPS.

I’m very familiar with the local community – having lived here all my life, I understand the sideroads and unique town layout in ways that others might not. I know that I’d be able to use this knowledge to better serve the community and maintain accuracy and effectiveness along my route. Beyond that, I’ve also already cultivated positive relationships with customers who would likely be on my route. I feel this would give me an advantage should an issue arise that I would need to solve, such as mail being lost or any other customer dissatisfaction.

I would be ready and able to provide service to the community seven days a week, and I have my own vehicle with which to do so. I love being part of the community, and I think that working as a member of USPS would be the perfect combination of my skills and knowledge and my love for my neighborhood.

Thank you very much for your time and consideration. Please find my resume attached, and I look forward to hearing from you.

Best wishes,

Mallory Detweiller”

“Dear Hiring Manager,

I’m excited to be applying for a City Carrier Assistant position at USPS. Having completed Postal Exam 474 with a passing grade, I believe that my postal work knowledge and my strong work ethic makes me the perfect fit for a job with USPS.

I’ve recently graduated from John F. Kennedy High School, where I held a 3.0 GPA and was senior class secretary. My love of learning, helping others, and organization were the key to my success in high school, and I know that these traits will serve me well as a City Carrier Assistant. In fact, I was so trusted in my student council position that I was given a key to the school building!

Upon my first attempt at Postal Exam 474, I scored 93. I attribute this to my absolute determination to work for the USPS. I would bring the same focus and drive that I brought to preparing (for hours each day) for the Postal Exam to my role as a City Carrier Assistant, because I understand that the role is to be taken extremely seriously. While I don’t have direct experience as a Postal Carrier, I believe that I exemplify the mission of USPS to provide trusted, safe and secure communications and use technology and innovation to meet changing needs.

Please find attached my resume. I very much respect the mission of USPS, and I’m very excited at the prospect of working as a City Carrier Assistant.

Thank you for your time, and consideration,

Jeremy Adler”

Sample 5: “Cover letter for a rural carrier with no experience”

“Dear Department Manager,

I’m pleased to submit my resume and application for the Mail Handler Assistant (MHA) position with USPS. Through my volunteer experience and personal life, I’ve always most enjoyed situations in which I can stay active and work with others to get things done. Therefore, I think I’d be a great fit for an MHA position at USPS!

In my spare time, I’m heavily involved in the fitness community. In high school, I began training for local races and marathons, and I’ve recently begun participating in weight training and lifting competitions. These practices require a great deal of strength and endurance – both physically and mentally. Not only has my experience given me the physical strength required to move heavy mail from trucks and equipment, it’s also given me the discipline to ensure all of my work with USPS is done quickly and efficiently.

I graduated from high school in 2020, where I was involved in leadership organizations dedicated to helping new students find their footing in the school environment. It was very important to work collaboratively in these settings, because we were responsible for demonstrating a united school community to new students, which helped make them feel welcome. I plan on bringing this experience and mindset to the MHA position with USPS!

Please find my resume attached. Thank you so much for your time and consideration, and I look forward to hearing from you!

Best wishes,

Miranda Booth”
