To Whom It May Concern

This letter is my personal recommendation for Eric Baldwin who has worked as a Clerk under my supervision for 3 years. As a consistently pleasant individual, Eric efficiently handled all assignments and has become a valuable resource since he joined the company.

Eric is a joy to work with; there are no missed deadlines and no procrastination as far as his work is concerned. He is a take-charge individual who has a keen ability to present his work in a professional way and has never been tardy. From the very simple tasks such as filing to the more complicated scheduling work, Eric has the capability of handling everything with precision and due diligence.

His special expertise lies in his ability to provide marketing support which has earned the company a 55% profit in the last year alone. Eric has outstanding organizational skills which coupled with high work ethics is an amalgamation that most of us seek in someone working in a clerical position.

To conclude, I would like to reiterate the fact that Eric will be a great addition to any company’s clerical staff owing to his constant ability to rise to new challenges. I strongly recommend him and will be happy to answer any questions regarding his abilities or this recommendation.
