The process of being admitted to an academic institution or application for a scholarship are not easy tasks. Every year, thousands of applicants are asking to be admitted and admissions staff are deluged with volumes of letters asking to be accepted. One of the strategies is to ask a teacher or your high school principal to make a really good recommendation letter on your behalf. 

Our generic letters of recommendation are aimed to help users in applying for admission to a higher institute of learning among other examples. These letter of recommendation samples will guide you to write a perfect referral to help anyone who requests you for a recommendation. In making a letter of recommendation, the following considerations should considered:

  • Know the Student Personally

Putting in a good word for a student in a letter of recommendation is to remember the exact details about how the student in question performed in your class. It wouldn’t help if you write a glowing recommendation letter without remembering the specifics about how the student fared academically. This would put you in a dilemma about what to write.

  • Make a Good Introduction, Body, and Conclusion

The generally accepted standard for addressing the admissions staff  is to address the letter with “To Whom It May Concern.” You can then state how long you’ve known the student and how his character, abilities, and qualities make him a positive role model and excellent performer. Conclude your letter by giving your name and number in case you need to be contacted for further verification.

For letters of recommendation when applying for a job, the standard pretty much follows the same as school acceptance and scholarship applications with the “To Whom It May Concern” address. It also follows the routine characteristics of an employee’s ability, special qualities, and skills. The employer (usually a former employer) needs to put in a good word and a well-crafted letter of recommendation to help the former employee get hired on his or her new job.
