Recommendation letter templates are pre-designed formats that may be used for drafting letters recommending someone for a job or for admission to an institution. Irrespective of its kind, the following points must be kept in mind for creating a perfect recommendation letter template.
- The top left format of the letter should bear space for incorporating the name and address of the person to whom the letter is being addressed.
- The letter should have provision to begin with a sample statement of intent or purpose of recommendation.
- The relationship shared with the person recommended must be mentioned in the space designated. The letter should offer factual details (sample of their performance, professional attributes and personal character) in support of the recommendation.
- The letter must end with a provision for detailing a contact where the recipient can contact for any further information that may be deemed necessary while considering the recommended person.
