* Make every effort to get a specific name. If you absolutely cannot,
address your letter to the right department, making sure you know the
current name of the department--for example, Human Resources vs.
+ If you are unable to get a name or do not even have the employer name (for example, if you are replying to a "blind" ad), do not use "Dear Sir/Madam" or "To Whom It May Concern." "Dear Employer," "(Position Title) Search Committee," or "Director of (fill in appropriate department)" are examples of appropriate salutations in these cases.
