I am pleased to recommend Name for a position in your company.

Name is organized, efficient, extremely competent, and has an excellent rapport with people of all ages. Her communication skills, both written and verbal, are excellent.

Name was a student in my class during his second year of college. Because there were fewer than 40 students in the class, I had the opportunity to become more fully acquainted with Name and the other students than did professors teaching larger sized classes. I was very impressed with Name’s performance in class, in his assignments, and on his examinations. Name also made many significant contributions to our class discussions. He was always well prepared and took a keep interest in our class discussions.

Name is well-liked by his classmates and has demonstrated on several occasions that he is willing to do more than is required. He has conducted class review sessions, and all the indications that I received suggest that he did an outstanding job. His work is evidence of his positive attitude, and demonstrates both his willingness to contribute and the high esteem in which he is generally held.

Name would be a tremendous asset to the town and I recommend her to you without reservation. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
