Dear Ms. Burns,
I’m writing to apply for the recently advertised delivery person position with Burns Delivery. I have been driving for six years and have a spotless record, as well as my own, reliable vehicle.

I was a State finalist in Track and Field in high school, and my field hockey team also made it to the State finals, which shows that I work well independently and as a team player.
As a lifelong resident of Home Town, and regular volunteer in Earth Day clean-ups, I know this community like the back of my hand, which will make me a particularly efficient delivery driver.
I am very good at multi-tasking and love working in a fast-paced environment.
