Do you have a company that you'd love to work for that hasn't advertised job openings? Whether you have heard through the grapevine that a company is hiring or if you don't know for certain, one way or the other, you can reach out to the organization to express your interest.
If you are aware that the company is hiring, but hasn't advertised the job you're interested in, or, if you have a company in mind that you would like to work for and don't know if they have job openings, the cover letters you write will need to have a different pitch than the letters you write to apply for an advertised job opening.
Here are tips on what to include in a cover letter for an unadvertised job, including what to write, who to write to, how to format it, and how to get your letter or email message read.
