Eagle Scout Letters Of Recommendation - Stick To The Fundamentals

Eagle Scout Letters Of Recommendation

Until the early eighties, employment references worked and served their purpose relatively well. They tended to be very candid and were sometimes too honest. However, in recent years, faculty, administrators, and employers do not tend to provide frank information about their former students and employees, either verbally or in writing.

Emphasize key points that you want the reader to note on the applicant's resume or job application. Be sure to meaningfully elaborate, don't simply restate. Give specific examples to back up what you have said about the person's qualifications and character.

Below are some tips to think about when preparing a reference letter.

* Offer to provide more information.
* Use your own professional letterhead, if available.
* Qualify yourself early in every reference letter you write. Say what qualifies you to give such a reference and testament to the caliber employee this job seeker would be. Be sure to write about when you met and how long you have known the job seeker.

Here is a reference letter sample for you.

I have known Name in a variety of capacities for many years. He has been my daughter's riding instructor for the past several years. In addition, he is my partner in a small business where she is responsible for writing and editing articles and website content.

I have come to know Name as a student in my course. Without question, he was one of the top students taking the course. This course places the primary responsibility on the student to developing the studentís analytical skills through the case studies. Name demonstrated depth in her understanding of the cases and sophistication in her employment of all areas of the class.

Name has shown her commitment to the town as a Member of the Board of Appeals, and as an active participant in many community endeavors.

Name is an intelligent and conscientious student. The written work he did for my class was always well above average. He displayed an ability to express her ideas clearly and concisely on paper. He is very articulate in the classroom setting.

In conclusion, I would highly recommend Name. If her performance in my class is any indication of how she'd perform in your position, Name will be a positive addition to your organization.
