  • Say, if the applicant does not know the name (of the person) reading the resume (or finally responsible for hiring), what should the salutation be if not "(HR Manager|Director)|Prospective Employer"? "To whom it may concern"?

    There are many situations when a name is not easy to come by: only an URL given; name cannot be deducted from an email address reliably everytime; phone call would be impossible due to time zone difference.

    • I would go with "To whom it may concern." Also totally acceptable is "Hiring manager."

      I'm probably not the best person to ask. I still get annoyed when I get mail from strangers that begins "Dear Mr. Signes" or "Dear Ricardo." If you don't know me, I am not dear to you!
