I am applying for a company. The job description does not say who to send resume to just submit resume. How would I address the cover letter? Is To whom it may concern to formal?
I have volunteered for a company for 6 years. One of those years I had a small 10 hour a week paid position. Would I separate these on my resume? Or would it be better to to list experience and put on there I performed a temporary position for a small time?

Address the letter: Dear Hiring Manager (to whom it may concern is way old school). Be sure to do your research on the company, so you can craft your coverletter and resume to fit the job and description. Reach out to your Linkedin, and other networks, to find a contact in the company.
Your resume should be either functional or chronological; don't try to combine the two, it will look sloppy.
