When writing a cover letter is it considered bad form to begin with the
recruiters first name? Too personal? If so, what is the alternative? This
is especially difficult with a female recruiter (no sexist overtones intended
or implied). Basically I'm having trouble with the Ms., Miss, Mrs., thing.
Also, is an email query considered a formal cover letter? If so, should it
be treated as such with format? Those often don't translate well and sending
a cover letter attachment seems a little redundant and possibly problematic.
