Who should you direct your cover letter to?
You should address a cover letter to the hiring manager of the job you're applying for, or the HR manager of the company. A basic cover letter salutation (or greeting) uses the hiring manager's first and last name, and includes a “Mr.”, “Ms.”, or other relevant professional title before their name.
Who is the recipient on cover letter?
The recipient of a cover letter is an HR representative or recruiter, and ultimately, the hiring manager. The hiring manager is the person who will be your future boss. When you address your cover letter, it is best to include the hiring manager's name.
Do you write cover letter to recruiter or hiring manager?
Addressing a cover letter to the hiring manager is appropriate in most situations. It's always better to include a generic greeting, like "Dear Hiring Manager," if you don't know the name of the hiring manager. It's also preferable to use if you're not sure of the accuracy of the hiring manager's information.
