Recommendation Letter Basics

A Recommendation Letter is your opportunity to speak on behalf of a respected friend, student, or colleague. Maybe you're recommending a former employee for a new job, or maybe you're writing a glowing reference for one of your students - either way, using our recommendation letter sample can be an important keystone in their endeavors. A Recommendation Letter helps you find the right words.

Use the Recommendation Letter document if:

  • You're an employer providing a recommendation for a former employee.
  • You're a teacher or professor writing a recommendation for a student.
  • You're being asked to vouch for someone's qualifications.

When someone asks for your recommendation, it's a big deal. Make sure you tackle it properly with a Recommendation Letter. A recommendation can be requested for a variety of reasons: students applying to colleges or graduate schools, a co worker seeking a new job, or a friend looking to participate in competitive programs. Whatever their reason is, a recommendation can go a long way to helping them succeed. What you say, and how you say it, can make a huge difference. To make the process easy, you can use our Recommendation Letter Template as inspiration to help you get your point across.
