A recommendation or reference letter is a great way of telling a future employer about the skills and abilities of an individual.
It highlights an employee’s specific skills and qualifications for a job – from the point of view of an ex-employer.
Recommendation letters are not only written by employers but also by coworkers and friends.
But since most recommendation letters are written by employers, let’s see what they entail.
A reference letter written by an employer needs to possess information that will help the employee in gaining another position.
This has to be written in good faith, outlining specifically what the individual is good at, and how he will be an asset to the company that he joins.
There is no room for negativity in a letter of recommendation. If you feel that you cannot write a positive one, refrain from writing one altogether.
And if you do decide that you can give an honest recommendation, here is a sample that you can look through:
