How to Properly Address a Letter: Everything You Need to Include
A cover letter can help you explain to potential employers the reasons why you are a good fit for a job. But it can also be used as a test to separate good candidates from the not-so-good. And one of the trickiest parts illustrating this test is the address because it's the first thing employers see. Hiring decisions come down to the smallest detail. Believe it or not, the most common mistake job seekers make is not writing the specific, proper name of the person to which they are sending a cover letter.

How to Address a Cover Letter Without a Name
An Australian careers and Linkedin expert has revealed the most crucial mistakes people make when they are preparing a cover letter - and what it really takes to get the attention of would-be-employers. Sue Ellson told Daily Mail Australia it is 'important to tailor the cover letter to the job description' that a cookie-cutter approach of sending out an identical letter doesn't work. Applicants should avoid starting the letter with 'to whom it may concern' or 'the hiring manager' and instead address it directly to their would-be-boss by name. This shows you have done your research and have not just filled in the blanks of a generic letter. The cover letter also should address key job requirements and selection criteria - using similar language to that in the job listing.
Using a formal full name salutation to the hiring manager or recruiter is the best way to address a cover letter, but what do you do if you just can't find a name? You don't want to look like you didn't do your homework, and you also don't want to create a cover letter that sounds too informal. Follow these tips for addressing a cover letter when you don't have the name of the hiring manager.
