I was fortunate enough to be featured in this fantastic article by Zippia: Who To Address Cover Letter To If Unknown (With Examples)

You’ve written the bulk of your cover letter and it’s looking flawless, but you are missing one important thing before you can press send: A recipient.

These days, much of the job search is done online through job sites like Zippia. There are many advantages to seeking jobs online, but it can limit the face-to-face aspect many older job seekers remember having when applying for jobs.

When applying for jobs now, you often are faced with a million application links. When submitting your resume or cover letter, it isn’t necessarily addressed to a certain person, but rather uploaded to a section of the application.

So if you are confused about how to address a cover letter when you don’t have an obvious recipient, then you have come to the right place.

Some ideas:

👉 Dear Sir or Madam

👉 Dear Hiring Manager

👉 Dear Talent Acquisition Team

👉 [Company Name] HR Department

👉 [Company name] Hiring Manager

👉 Dear Human Resources Manager

👉 Dear Human Resources Department

👉 Dear [Company Name] Recruiter

👉 Dear [Department Name] Hiring Manager

👉 Dear [Department Name] Hiring Team
