Rebecca’s Answer

No matter what company or career you are interested in, do your research before blasting out resumes and cover letters. Be strategic about how you spend your time and make sure those letters are personalized as much as possible. I used to be a Recruiter and used LinkedIn quite a bit to find good candidates. Create a professional profile on there, follow companies and industries you are interested in working for. Also, you can search for Human Resource professionals or Recruiters who work for those companies and send them connection requests. Recruiters are always looking to build their network and are likely to connect with anyone who sends them a request. This will give you a closer connection to open positions they are trying to fill, will give you more access to their network in order to expand yours, and can allow you to ask for more specific career advice since they are the experts.

Rama’s Answer

Great question:

1. When you are applying to a job online - address it to the Hiring Manager and attach your resume.
2. In case you know the Hiring Manager or HR Manager or Recruiter's name - address it to them (Ex - Dear Hiring Manager, Dear HR Manager, Dear Recruiter )
3. Address also to the company you are applying to - To XYZ company, Dear Hiring Manager so on

Hope this helps. Best of luck with your career!

Swati’s Answer

Look at the LinkedIn profiles, and figure out the org hierarchy and see if you can find the hiring manager to send over your resume. Also, make a quick connection on linkedIn and then send an email. Focus on the bulk of the email, rather than cover letter. Also make sure that the resume is really polished.

Every company has a talent acquisition team, may be try reaching out to them.
