Contractor to Clients: May I ask a favor?
Dave D. 4 posts - United States
Hello, Gentle Client,
I'm brand new here at ODesk, just getting my feet wet and applying for a few jobs. I've noticed that many of you don't include a contact name in your postings, which means I must use the generic "Dear Hiring Manager" in my cover letter.
It's so impersonal. Even rude. Please give us a name. Any name. It doesn't have to be your name. It might even be your dog's name. I'd rather address my cover letter to "Spike" than to "Hiring Manager." I'd like to at least sort of feel like I'm talking to a person. Although I might feel a bit intimidated talking to a person named "Spike."
But it's still better than Hiring Manager.
Thank you for your time. It's great to be here!
