Most employers ask for a cover letter along with a packer resume for jobs these days. In fact, they want to get a better insight into the candidate’s qualifications and competencies.
If you are applying for a packer job and are required to come up with a cover letter, below are two golden rules that can take your cover letter from the ordinary to extra ordinary level.
● Personal Value: While writing a cover letter, place the focus on your personal value since your resume can not do that. Relate your candidacy with the position in question.
● A little bit extra: Determine a few traits of your candidacy that can help you stand out of the crowd. What special needs of the employing firm can you cater for? First find out their requirements and then address the same directly.
Following is a well written cover letter sample for your guidance.

✔ Devised an automated inventory keeping mechanism ensuring 100% availability of packaging material at all times

✔ Independently set up 3 stations for receiving and packaging material
Being a proven team player with demonstrated ability to work and interact with all levels of management, I get along very well with my colleagues and I believe I will readily settle in with the dedicated team of packers and retailers at Berry’s Plastic Corporation.
I cannot wait to start working for your firm through demonstration of high quality packing and inspection services. Please call me now to set up an interview date and time. I will follow up this application coming Friday.
