Whenever I contact an organization to ask who I should direct my cover letters and resumes to, I’m always told my resume will be going to multiple people and that I shouldn’t bother directing my cover letter to anyone in particular. Try as might to get a direct answer, I’m always left in the dark.
I’ve done my LinkedIn research and have names of direct reports and potential bosses, but I’m hesitant to include any individual names without a confirmation from the company (especially when a hiring manager isn’t included in the mix). What should I do?
