Sometimes, Employers are
requiring the applicants to submit a Letter of Recommendation which may come
from your previous Company, Manager or Colleague.
These letter of recommendation
will carry out a significant weight for the candidate. And somehow, this kind
of letter might also help in terms of personality, characteristics and work
ethics of the candidate who is currently applying in their company.
Before writing, you must think
how you can effectively support the Job applicant.
Here are some guidelines that
will help you in creating a proper Recommendation Letter.
First things first: Consider
the type of letter.
It is better to confirm with
the person first what type of recommendation the company requires them
to submit. For some, they are asking for a reference
letter where you
should write all the requirements of a
particular job that he or she is applying for. You can also check their Job details
to have an idea with their skills and to boost the candidate chance of getting
hired. You can also include the personality of that person, how well-verse they
are as an individual or how they cooperate as a team.
Second to the Last: Collecting
You have to gather all the necessary information and
require the candidate
to provide you with the copy of their job details
and resume. Make
sure that all essential information are
complete before you start to write just in case that you might need to review his or her employment
history along with the cover letter to know
more about how they input their qualifications for the job.
Third Ends here: What to and
not to include.
should be consists of two to three paragraphs:
In first paragraph, you can explain how you know the candidate. Kindly input your details such as name and job designation. Also include the candidate’s ethics towards work and
with other employees or managers.
In second paragraph, you should state
the job applicant’s skills, knowledge and other assets of the person you are
support all the positive qualities that you have mentioned *your
signature is required. This will make your letter more credible.
Note: No matter what type of letter you might be writing right now.
All details should be collected first before you
