Can i just use the first and last name of a recruiter if I do not have any other information?

by Leah Lee
(Philadelphia, PA)

I want to apply for a job online but the website only list the first and last name of the person. There is no contact number and the company is large, so I believe it would be impossible for me to obtain their information? How should I address the recruiter?

ANSWER: Leah, if you have the recruiter's name, you are already way ahead of many applicants for jobs. I guess you are wondering what their position is? I don't think it matters... just address the letter like so:
"Mr. NAME," or "Ms. NAME".
