The heading of the cover letter should contain your current contact information. For example;
- Phone Number
- Email ID (skip if you have applying by email)
- Address (optional)
- Online Portfolio (if applicable)
- Link to LinkedIn profile (if applicable)
The salutation is to greet to the intended reader. Thus, address it to the Recruiter/Hiring Manager. Bear in mind to avoid using general greeting like “To whom it may concern”.
