Letters of reference for medical technologist position can be written in many situations, but the most common is when an ex-employee is looking for a new job. Or rather, has found a new job opportunity and is looking for someone to recommend him or her. Nowadays, references are required everywhere in the corporate world. Some companies might ask you to write the name of a reference contact in a form and be done with it. Others will ask for actual letters written by the reference you have mentioned on the HR form.
In the latter situation, you might want to ask a colleague or a supervisor at your previous place of work to help you out. The only criteria of writing a letter of reference is that it must be written by a person who has worked closely with you, or has supervised your work for a certain time. Since reference letters are depended on quite a lot where decisions to hire an individual are concerned, it is important that they are written with precision, and that they involve a lot of detail about the person’s professional and personal standing.

To Whom It May Concern
I have known Tina Black for over 6 years in a professional capacity, and I am delighted to be called upon as a reference for her. Tina has worked as a medical technologist for Rex Healthcare since January 2011 and has never given me any cause for complaint or concern during these years.
Tina is by far the most detail-oriented individual I know, who has gone to great lengths to conduct chemical analysis of samples provided to her – even when she was not specifically instructed to do so. It is this particular aspect of her professional personality that has led her to reach new findings, and determine abnormalities in samples, where other technologists have failed. I have often been left flabbergasted by the intensity with which she performs all her duties, whether they are as mundane as generating daily laboratory reports, or as complex as analyzing blood cells using advanced technology.
Since Tina has worked directly under my supervision for such a long time, I can safely bet that she is indeed the best medical technologist I have come across in my 15 years of experience. She is proactive, knowledgeable and thorough – 3 qualities that have made her a hot favorite where complex laboratory results are expected. She has my strong recommendation as I am sure that she will be a great credit wherever she works.
