How to address a cover letter has been a heated debate in career circles for a long time.
In fact, I was adamantly opposed to “To Whom It May Concern” for years until about a year or two ago. It was then that I decided that TWIMC was better than all the other salutations out there.
For those of you who hire and recruit, what do you suggest? Is it better to leave it blank? Should applicants use some other phrase like “To the Hiring Manager” or “To the Decision Maker”? (YUCK!)
And for everyone: what are your suggestions for finding the right person to address in your letter.
