How To Address A Cover Letter

Kent Nolen

From the archives - common questions worth re-addressing. Q: How do I address a cover letter.

A: When a name is provided in the requisition, you’re in luck! Address your letter to that person. So, if the requisition says John Smith, address the letter to John Smith (not Mr. Smith). If the requisition provides no name – as is usually the case – use a gender neutral salutation, such as Dear Hiring Manager.  Do not omit a greeting and do not go with something such as Dear Sir.
