Mass Mailing to Small Firms - To Whom Should I Address It?

Postby whatamidoing » Thu Aug 08, 2013 11:51 am

Sorry if this topic has been discussed to death.

I just have a quick question - I'm a 2L, mass mailing small firms (targeting firms with 5-15 attorneys, that seem to be hiring about one associate per year) that specialize in the field I am interested in.

For some of the firms I cannot find an office manager or administrative assistant or similar concept. To whom do you guys recommend I address my cover letters? To a random partner with whom I have similar school connections? Or is it better in this situation to simply do the dreaded "To whom it may concern?" Or an associate attorney?

I would really appreciate any advice. I wouldn't be here if I hadn't already investigated the firm's staff and come up with no solid name. Should I call the firm and ask?

Thanks guys and good luck to everyone with OCI.

call and ask.

1) they're either tell you they aren't hiring; or
2) you get it to the right person
