To Whom It May Concern

I am very pleased to write on behalf of Andrew Higgs who asked me to recommend him for admission to Florida State University.

Andrew has been working as an Administrative Assistant under my supervision for over two years now and has been an absolute joy to work with. During the time that he has spent working alongside me, he has shown both passion and professionalism for his work.

Andrew has always been very proactive where his work is concerned and possesses an extremely effective personal style. He has not only managed his own work in a profound manner but has been assisting the marketing department continuously since he started work. His marketing and management talent is remarkable to say the least and we consider him to be a strong asset to our company.

When we interviewed Andrew for this position, he told us that he wanted to pursue his education further and would like to enroll himself in an MBA program somewhere down the road. I presume that day has come and while we are sad to let such an important part of our organization go, we wish him all the luck and recommend his fully for this program.


Sincerely yours,
