Hi,

Should the phrase "To Whom It May Concern" be capitalized when used in the beginning of an email to a prospective employer?

You should never, never write to a prospective employer using these words. Never!

Try to find the name of the person who handles job applications, and write to them using that name.

If you really can't find the name, say 'Dear Sir or Madam'.

Best wishes, Clive
