Body: Dear [Hiring Manager’s Name], Please find attached a copy of my resume and a cover letter for the [Job Title] position at [Company Name].
Email Body Use full sentences with proper spelling and grammar. Avoid using contractions or writing in all upper-case or lower-case letters. Keep your message brief and to the point. The opening sentence can be a greeting such as “I hope all is well.” However, this is usually not necessary.
In our specific case being formal, the most appropriate options are:Dear Mr/Mrs/Ms (surname of the recipient, e.g. Mr Black)Dear Sir/Madam (if you don’t know the name of the recipient) or more generally ‘To whom it may concern’
Do: Include the name of any mutual contact that referred you for the position. Put it in the subject line, e.g.: Janice Smith referral: Peter Golightly for Data Analyst job (4432). Do: Address the hirer respectfully. Start with ‘Dear’, then the name of the person who is mentioned in the vacancy (if available).
If you’re sending a cold email to a stranger you haven’t met, you should open your email something like “Hello Hercules,” or “Hi Zeus,”. This is casual yet not too laid-back. If you don’t know the contact’s name, try “Greetings!” or “Hi there!”.
If the content of the email is not official or doesn’t involve elaborate etiquette, the email can begin simply with Hi or Hello. If you want to be formal, the age old address for an known as well as unknown recipient is/are “Dear Sir/Madam”.
