How to Address a Cover Letter with No Name

Trying to apply a job should have a cover letter and resume or CV. Indeed, that most of all the company give this rule as basic requirements though sometimes they make it with online. Well, a cover letter usually addresses for the Hiring Manager, Human Resource Development and so on. Yet, what if you do not know the contact person’s name? Or do not know the hiring manager gender? Of course you have to search it by asking the company or sometimes it exists in the job listing. Though, it is not always the Hiring Manager.

Yet, when you already search for the name but find nothing or even you are not sure about you have found, then you can use generic greeting or none at all. It is okay when you decide to start your letter without any greeting.

The Options
You know, as a job seeker we want to have a best and perfect cover letter. We may think that it will be a good point when we know the name of the hiring manager. Yet, sometimes we cannot find it at the job listing. Well, there are several options we can choose when we do not know the name of the hiring manager. First of all of course you should ask it. You can try to visit the official website or even make a phone call to the company. Usually there is a contact number that you can call. Try it!
When you cannot find the name even after you give all of your effort, you can leave it and start your first paragraph. It is okay. You know, there is no absolute right in writing cover letter. As long as you are using business and formal format, it is accepted. Even, when you are using your own style, your cover letter is still working. If you do not like to leave it then you can use the general salutation.

How to Address a Cover Letter with No Name
Do not worry because there are a lot of general salutations. It is not a big deal and to not know the name of the Hiring Manager is not the end of the world. Though there are some general salutations, there are common salutations using as options such as:
  • Dear Hiring Manager
  • To Whom It May Concern
  • Dear Sir/Madam
  • Dear Human Resources Director

You may find some of them, but let see the example using ‘To Whom It May Concern Salutation’ cover letter below:

To Whom It May Concern:


As an experienced Account Manager who is presently pursuing an additional degree in English language as well as experiences in advertising and marketing, I am writing to a prospective employer in order to offer my abilities and talents. I am interested in a position that will allow me to combine my current experiences with new approaches, processes and methods of advertising in a US company.
I spent five years working as an Account Manager for Saatchi and Saatchi Advertising Company in London. In this position I had broad responsibilities, particularly in ensuring that clients received the highest quality of service, planning, organization, and support. My responsibilities included scheduling project delivery, creating budgets, meeting deadlines, coordinating technical staff, and providing input for the development of new and existing project management procedures. I also have 2 years experiences working as a production supervisor in publishing, cooperating with publishing houses all over the world to publish books in the UK.
I am available to interview immediately, and am hoping to start an internship in October. I have done some research about your company, and identified your company as the place I would most like to do my internship. I think that working for you would be a great way to both expand my skills and have a rewarding internship experience in San Francisco, and help working towards a career in communications when I return to London. I have enclosed my resume for you to review.
Thank you for your time consideration. I would appreciate the opportunity to speak with you discuss your company’s needs, as well as capabilities to fulfill those needs. I hope that you will consider me for an appropriate position.


Sincerely,


Anna Laurent
