Recommendation Letter for a Colleague

A letter of recommendation is what is also called a reference letter. Recommendation letters are written in order to assist people to get good jobs, to get selected for training programs, to join workshops etc. Sometimes, recommendation letters are also written for procedures like adoption etc. There is no set format for a recommendation letter, however, the writer or the person who is recommending should write this letter in a convincing tone. A mention of the referred person’s character and achievements should be made and the reader should be told how the referred person could prove beneficial for them. It should, however, not be overlooked that in reference or recommendation letters you are responsible for what you write. Writing letters for people who do not deserve a referral or recommendation is nothing but snatching right of a deserving candidate.
