If you're writing another cover letter and blindly reaching out to a recruiting department, "To Whom It May Concern" may feel a little tired. Well, that's because it is. Would you like to receive a universal letter that pretty much addresses no one? Probably not.
Here are several ways to spruce up the letter and show you're putting in more effort than your average job seeker. Whichever way you decide to spice it up, please don't be that guy or gal who makes the ultimate faux pas: "Dear Sirs." Yes, job seekers still do this, and yes, for equal opportunity workplaces it can be a major turnoff. Even "Dear Sirs or Madam" is a lot better but still seems very 1950s. Try these instead:
