Sending a cover letter along with your resume will help you in convincing the employer to read your resume. We use our resume and cover letter to show our credentials to employers but both should not be same. You should be able to highlight the difference between your resume and package handler cover letter. Your cover letter should not be too lengthy but it should be able to convince the employer to arrange an interview for you.
Job Description of a Package Handler:
A package handler is responsible for sorting the packages, scanning them and then loading them for delivery. He should look into the entire process of delivery. Package handlers with a high school degree are paid more than those without any degree. A package handler should also look for the labels and barcodes on the packages and sort them accordingly. He should be physically fit so that he can move and load the packages. Sometimes heavy packages require more strength so an individual with a healthy physique is more in demand for this type of job position where physical stress is more than mental stress.
