Personal Reference Letter for a Friend

Your reference letter for your friend could prove a great deal of help to him in order to get approval for a job, to get into a training program or to initiate a business partnership etc. While writing a reference letter, be sure that reference letter is not merely a paragraph of few lines requesting the person to consider your friend because he’s your friend. That’s, of course, insane since he is your friend, not his. He would want reasons to consider your friend’s proposal. Letters written with this strategy will not make any positive effect rather they increase the possibilities of rejection. With your improper reference letter for your friend you can take revenge of an old grudge if you ever want to but please don’t be that unkind.
