Overview of a Recommendation Letter

What is a Recommendation Letter?

A recommendation letter is a document, usually written by an employee’s supervisor, designed to enhance the merits of a prospective job candidate applying for another company. In order to ensure that the letter serves as a compelling and reliable reflection of the candidate’s skillset, make sure that the business’ name and address, as well as the writer’s name and address is on the top of the page, accompanied by the date.

The content of the letter itself should entail the candidate’s personal and professional achievements within a specific department or process which may be relevant to the employee’s target company or position, as well as details of the applicants positive personality traits and examples that clearly showcase them. In closing, the writer should reiterate their genuine recommendation of the applicant and their ability to use their skills and knowledge to benefit the company.
