I was invited to a networking/recruitment event by 2 recruiters who signed off together. Can I address my cover letter to both of them? and should it by by first name only?

Many thanks

95% practise, 5% theory. We can make 2-3 real cases in a session or split the time 50:50 between case study and general background

Yes, its totally OK to write to both.

First name would be fine in 90% of the cases I think. However, it depends on the country specifics and on the formality of the event.

Hi,

You can address your cover letter to both of the recruiters with their full name.

Hi Anonymous,

Yes, I'd address both of them and I can't see a disadvantage of that.

Whenever in doubt, use the slightly more formal version - so I would address them with their full name unless you already do have a first-name based communication history with them.

Hope that helps!
