Business Reference Letter For Employment
Just as a good reference letter can be an asset, a bad reference letter can be a hindrance for an applicant. Here
are some do’s and don’ts to keep in mind when securing your professional reference letters:
Do choose someone who knows you well enough to give you a recommendation.
Do get recommendations from employers, professors, school administration, and anyone else who has
first-hand knowledge of your work experience and qualifications.
Do ask for the recommendation in person, rather than sending an email.
Do tell the letter writer why you need the reference letter.
Do mention specific experience, qualifications, and skills that you would like included in the letter.
Do send thank you notes afterwards to the people who wrote reference letters.
Do ask permission to keep copies of the letters in case you need to use them again in the future.
Don’t wait until the last minute. Secure reference letters as soon as possible.
Don’t ask someone to provide false or second-hand information.
Don’t ever forge signatures.
Don’t choose someone to be a reference because of his/her title. Choose someone who can verify first-
hand how your experience, skills, and abilities qualify you for the job.
Don’t hesitate to get as many reference letters as possible. Submit the letters that best describe why you
are qualified for the position.
Don’t forget to say please and thank you. A reference and his/her recommendation are valuable
