For uploaded or mailed cover letters, you do not need to include as much information as you would in an email message, because the heading of your cover letter includes your contact information. For a paper cover letter, use a formal business_style letter format which includes a heading, salutation, the body of the letter, closing, and your signature. Review these guidelines for what to include in your letter.
Sometimes a person's gender is unclear from a name _ names like "Corey" or "Blake," are both common women's and men's names. If that is the case, do some investigating to determine gender from searching on LinkedIn or a company website. But if it remains ambiguous, simply write out the person's full name, dropping the title. For example, "Dear Corey Meyer."
