Dear Ms. Shepperd:

Re: Letter of Recommendation - Layla Bell

I am very pleased to write this recommendation on behalf of Layla Bell.

Layla has been a student in the accelerated liberal arts program at Holymount High for her entire four years of high school. During that period I have observed her grow into a poised and accomplished young woman. She is an exceptional student with excellent grades resulting from diligent work habits.

Layla has superior interpersonal skills and works equally well, either independently or in a group setting. She also displays good leadership skills when involved in group projects. She is very well liked and respected by both her peers and her teachers.

Among her many service activities at the school, Layla was a coach of the junior track team for the past two years and she was a member of the senior cross-country team. She also took part in the Mentoring Program and helped a number of juniors navigate their way through their first year of high school. In addition, Layla was involved in organizing a number of fund-raising projects at the school, including a team marathon event that raised over $5,000 for cancer research.

Layla has shown an ongoing interest in world affairs and international development. It is my understanding that she intends to pursue an Honors degree in Political Science or Sociology. She has traveled extensively for her age and has written outstanding reports with observations on conditions she has witnessed throughout the world.

I believe that Layla Bell has tremendous potential as a student and I feel quite confident that she would be an asset to both student life and academics at MacDonald University.

Yours truly,

Allan S. Fenton

I am delighted to be called upon as a reference for John Doe. I first became acquainted with Mr. Doe in 1992, when he joined the development group I supervised.

While she was with us she supervised the maintenance of all computer networks. This responsibility involved working with 42 separate offices.

Her ability to interact with customers and resolve their complaints in a pleasant manner gave us a significant advantage.

In the past ten years he has submitted 23 suggestions that the Doe Corporation has implemented, saving the company thousands of dollars.

Her keen sense of organization and unlimited energy led to her promotion a year earlier than usual.

The loss of government contracts has caused us to curtail operations in our Springfield plant where she was employed. If circumstances were to change, we would not hesitate to rehire her.

The above phrases were selected and copied verbatim using the software interface tool of one of the major "automatic letter generator" software programs that is widely advertised on the Internet. The letter will have to be revised in three stages. First, the above sentences will have to be tied together into a coherent letter that makes sense. Second, the revised template will have to be adapted to fit the user's real-life situation. Third, the letter will have to be properly formatted.
Instant Letter Writing Kit does ALL of this for you.

[individual] has been with our firm for several years and has been one of our outstanding employees in the accounting department. For family reasons, he is moving to your area and we are truly sorry to lose him.

He has all of the fine qualities you would expect from a good employee and I honestly feel that any firm that hires him will be quite fortunate.

I believe that it could be mutually beneficial if the two of you could meet once he arrives in [city] . He is mature and of course realizes that there may not be an opening for him at this time.

Shall I suggest that he make an appointment with you? I will be looking forward to your reply.

The above letter template was copied verbatim using the software interface tool of another major "automatic letter generator" software program that is widely advertised on the Internet.
