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,
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!
I’m pleased to put forward my application for the Motor Vehicle Operator (MVO) position with USPS. I love the idea of being responsible for mail pick up and transport – the importance of this position is not lost on me, and I truly believe that I’d be a great fit for the job!
I’ve recently completed the required training and applications to receive my commercial driver’s license, and I can’t think of a better place to put it to use than with USPS. In everything I do, I strive to be friendly, punctual, and efficient. In high school, I was responsible for organizing social events for the school, such as spirit days, dances, and other activities. This planning required me to prioritize punctuality and organization above all else, and the result of that was a seamlessly planned school social event calendar. In fact, school faculty specifically requested that my successor contact me if she needed any help throughout the process. I’d love to bring that same level of collaboration to this position with USPS.
My clean driving record is a point of pride. To me, it demonstrates that I’m courteous and able to follow rules while continuing to get the job done. I’m excited to bring that same professionalism to this MVO position with USPS! I understand that this position brings me directly into my community, and I really look forward to serving them the best I can.
Thank you so much for your time and consideration. Please find my resume attached, and I look forward to hearing from you!
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.
