Everyone involved in the hiring process reads cover letters, including:
- human resources employees
- hiring managers
- supervisors and executives
If possible, greet a contact person by name. But if the job ad doesn’t list a contact person, and you can’t find one by researching the company, address your cover letter to either:
- Dear Hiring Manager,
- Dear [Department Name] Team,
So tailor your cover letter to the job posting to help your application get past an ATS, impress the hiring team, and land you an interview.
