What if I don’t know who to address the cover letter to? By Matthew Coppola


Occasionally a job advertisement will not mention a contact person. It may just ask for you to submit your resume and cover letter for consideration.

So, what can you do in this instance?

One option is to call the company advertising for the role and ask who is the best person to attention your application letter to. Doing so, can show enthusiasm and a keen interest in the position, along with helping you to get noticed by the employer.

The other option is to just put: ‘To Whom It May Concern:’.
