Whether you’re an employee asking your employer to vouch for your integrity or a student who applies for a scholarship or admission to a university, every one of us needs a recommendation letter several times over the course of our lives. Recommendation letters are useful tools for an assessment of the character and quality of the person and serves as a testimonial to being a trustworthy person deserving of consideration.
Our Sample Recommendation Letters are offered for a variety of purposes and will help direct how you can write a recommendation letter for a student or employee who may be applying for a new job or for admission to an academic institution. These are all available free for downloading and printing and are offered in both Word Doc and Portable Document Format (PDF) files.

The process of admission to a prestigious university or applying for a scholarship are never easy tasks. With thousands of applicants asking to be admitted each year, school admissions staff are inundated with volumes of letters asking to be accepted. One of the strategies is to make a really good recommendation letter (besides good grades of course) to be acknowledged.
Our sample recommendation letters are aimed to help as factors in applying for admission to a higher institute. These letter samples will guide you in writing a perfect referral to help whoever requests you for a recommendation. Besides our samples, the following considerations should be taken into account:
- Knowing the Student Personally
The only way to write a good recommendation letter is to remember the exact details about how the student performed in your class. Writing a glowing recommendation letter without remembering the specifics about how the student fared academically would put you in a dilemma about what to write.
- Good Introduction, Body and Conclusion
The generally accepted standard for addressing the admissions staff or whoever accepts the recommendation letter is “To Whom It May Concern.” Then state how you’ve known the student and how long, together with his character, abilities, qualities and anything positive you can write about the student. Conclude your letter of recommendation by giving your name and number in case you need to be contacted for further verification.
Aside from our Recommendation Letter Samples, we also have Sample Letters of Recommendation For Job for employers who may be requested by their employees who are in the process of applying for a new job. These are all free for downloading and printing and comes in either Word Doc or PDF file.

Recommendation Letter for Internship
For job recommendation letters, the standard pretty much follows the same thing with 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.
Our Recommendation Letter Samples and Sample Letters of Recommendation For Employment give the best ideas for writing the perfect recommendation letters without having to be confused on the tips about what to write. Lastly, do remember to give your honest assessment of the overall competence of the individual without sounding judgmental. It can defeat the purpose of why you were asked to write a letter of recommendation in the first place.
