Common Mistakes Writing to a department or title. Its always best to write to a real person with a real title. The exception to this is when youre answering an ad and specific contact information is not provided. If through an advertisement, write down where and when you saw it, and list the specific points the ad wants you to include. What do you know about the organization youre writing to?

Show a little excitement and passion for the potential employment; then follow this with a few key strengths you have that are pertinent to the position youre looking to obtain.
