One of the best ways to start writing the letter of recommendation is to start out with a formal greeting or you can simply use ‘To whom it may concern’. This is specially used when you don’t about the recipient.

Don’t forget to add qualifications and out of the box achievement of the person in the body of the letter. At the end of the letter confirm it again that you are recommending the person for the asked position or job. You can understand it more clearly by reading below tips.

How to Write Letter of Recommendation

Start With Formal Writing Conventions

Letter of recommendation is much similar to any other professional communication so don’t think it as too hard. All you need to follow some guidelines and rules like:

  • Followed by date writer your address on the top right.
  • Just below mention the recipient’s name and address (if you know).
  • Begin the body part with a formal business greeting like Dear Ms. David or Dear Sir or Madam (in case you don’t know the recipient’s name).

Open With Enthusiasm, Some Praise But Keep It Short

Let the company or organization know how much do you trust in a person with just opening lines. You don’t need to spill out the beans but make sure it should have some quick words that describe the personality and achievements. Keep in mind that your little words make a big difference. You can use below lines:

  • “It makes me extremely happy to recommend Michael for the position of Senior Analyst at XYZ Corporation.”
  • “No matter what he does, David Spencer does it well.”
  • “Any company should count themselves lucky to have an employee as bright, friendly, and dedicated as Mark.”

Describe How You Know The Person

It good to describe that how you worked together, how you met him or her etc. Here are some handpicked lines which you can use.

“I was both Merry’s adviser and teacher throughout her time at Oxford College. I watched her shine both in the classroom and during office hours, and had the joy of watching her meet and then exceed expectations with her thesis.”

“As VP of Website Development, I was David’s personal assistant from 2010 through 2018. We worked closely together on several key projects, and I got to know him very well during this time.

“As the Dean of Students, I deal with many young people throughout the day. However, I was lucky to spend several hours a week with Ms. Bonham in her role as Committee President. In my 32 years as Dean, I have rarely been so impressed.”

Be Specific About The Candidate’s Successes And Qualification

Describing the candidate’s successes and qualification help the new employer to understand his potential candidate easily. It is necessary because most of the things are not cleared in an interview or first meeting. Have a look at some examples.

“David’s sophisticated grasp of database architecture, combined with an innate feel for UX design and a warm, personal approach to his in-company client base dramatically improved the productivity of our company’s merchandising, creative, and editorial departments. His approach to managing application support, maintenance, and training were highly professional and greatly respected, both by end users and by the executive team.”


“Merry was always inquisitive but never pushy. Despite being able to answer almost any question, Merry would rather sit back and help others find the answer for themselves. Countless students, who I thought was doomed to struggle, happily told me how tutoring sessions with Gina helped them turn the corner. And I had many conversations, both as her professor and a peer, that I will remember happily for years.”

“When Ms. David hears the word “no,” you can almost see the gears start to turn. She is a mover and a shaker — interfacing with students, faculty, staff, and even outside agencies to find solutions to any problem.”

Top 10 Letter of Recommendation

Letter of Recommendation No. 1

This is our first template of the recommendation letter. It is specially drafted for you if you don’t know about the recipient. So instead of using ‘Dear Mr or Ms’ here, we used ‘To Whom It May Concern’.

In this recommendation letter, recommendation starts from the time duration of knowing the candidate. Further how she is at work is mentioned. It has some quality and powerful word for the candidate which you obviously don’t want to remover.

Those words are honest, reliable, helpful, outgoing personality, and more.  Get a little glimpse on it before you look on its preview “I have known Dominic Storey for five years. During this period she has demonstrated that he is a very honest and reliable person.

He has been my junior assistant for four years; he has not missed a day during this period and is always on time. Dominic has been very helpful with my other team members, and because of his outgoing personality, they have requested that he be their only assistant.

During the time she has been working for me, she has maintained excellent grades in school. Because of Dominic’s good judgment and proved work habits, I would highly recommend her for any job.

Here is our another great and impeccable template which you would love to use. It is a recommendation letter which is from the boss. He wants to recommend his junior analyst to another company.

It begins like Michael worked under my supervision as a junior analyst from January 01, 2015 to May 30, 2018.  His responsibilities included analyze data, check facts, monitor progress, in addition to some light clerical duties.

During the course of his employment, Michael proved himself to be an able employee, a hard worker, and a talented researcher. I was quite impressed by Michael’ ability to complete all work assigned to him on time, if not before it was due.

His research was always thorough and comprehensive, and his fact-checking was always accurate. We sometimes allow our research assistants to conduct their own experiments, but James’ talents prompted us to assign him more topics of research then the norm.
