*Note that the above template prompts the reader to insert the hiring managers name in both the opening address as well as the greeting of the letter itself. This is critical in getting your cover letter read as it makes the letter personal. Avoid “Dear Hiring Manager” whenever possible. Never use “To Whom It May Concern”, as this is the most impersonal and rude type of greeting one could include on a cover letter.
“Dear Hiring Manager”
“To Whom It May Concern”
“Dear Ms. Bowman”
“To Ms. Bowman & The Acme Marketing Department”
Where resumes can exceed one page in length for the seasoned musician, cover letters should always be limited to one page, as it is to serve as an introduction to your resume, only highlighting key points, and not a stand alone document.
