Who should a cover letter be addressed to if you are unsure who the hiring manager is?

Great question! A cover letter does not need to be addressed to a specific person unless you know who the recruiter or hiring manager is. It is acceptable (and common) to address as "To Whom it May Concern". I have also seen candidates address to "Recruiter" or "Talent Acquisition" or "Hiring Manager". These are all acceptable as well.

Hello- It's fine to address your cover letter to "Whom It May Concern", "Hiring Team", or "HR Team".
