Is it okay to address a cover letter "Dear Sir or Madam?”

Send Your Cover Letter to the Right Person

Show your interest in a company by personalizing your cover letter with the name of the hiring manager. If specific contact information is not included on the job posting, use the company's Web site, the library, or the Chamber of Commerce to discover who is in charge of hiring. You can also call the company and ask them for a name and correct spelling to put on your cover letter. If all of these methods fail, write "Dear Hiring Manager."
