Recommendation Letters



  So You Want Me to Write You a 
Recommendation Letter ...

I'm happy to do so. In order to write the most effective letter I would like you to provide me the following documents:

  • An up-to-date resume (including your email address)
  • A list of classes you've taken with me and your grades

I will also need the following information in "bullet" list form:

  • The name(s) and address(es) of the person(s) to receive the letter.
  • The type of position you are applying for and skills required.
  • A list of your strengths (highlight those related to the job you are applying for).
  • Evidence of your strengths that "proves it".
  • One weakness you are working on and how you are working on it.
  • Other suggestions for areas you wish me to comment on.

What you can expect of me:

  • A copy of the letter via email.
  • A letter approximately 1-page long (employers rarely read more than that).
  • A letter mentioning at least one weakness (it "frames" the positive messages in an even more favorable light.)

Finally, I'd appreciate you keeping me updated on your progress. Good luck!
