Normally a cover letter is not written with the name of any potential employer name.

A cover letter is normally a summary of your resume.

You would need google cover letters to resumes to get an idea of what your cover letter should include.

I hope this has been of some benefit to you, good luck.

Dear Sir or Madam, usually starts things off and works for me.

Or call them up and find out whom is going to be hiring you.

Ring the company, ask the name and title of the person you are sending your letter and resume to. The address the letter to that person with their title.

eg: Mr E Jones, HR Manager, ABC Books, address

Give it up. Go and apply at McDonalds.

Dear Hiring Manager. Though I don't know why you can't call the company and ask the receptionist on the phone at the front desk who you need to address it to.

Dear Recruiter,

Dear Hiring Manager,

You start it with To Whom It May Concern,

how are you supposed to submit what you think is a resume ( but w/o any experience is a useless document ) when you don't know who you are applying to ??

Before I had my first job, I would lie about work experience, cuz no place hires you if you have no work experience.

Just put down your friends number, give a fake name, and ask your friend to pose as your employer if a job calls him about you.

If you're applying for the job they are not your employer yet.

Research, ask questions, find out! This is important and will get you noticed over others that don't know it.

Or, if you really can't find out address it:

"To Whom It May Concern", "To Human Resources" or "Dear Sir or Madam".
