Reference Letter Samples

How to Write Reference Letters


A reference letter is a letter written to positively describe somebody or an organization or a company so that the recipient will have more factual consideration in making decision related to the person or a company suggested in it. A reference  letter is usually written by former employer or supervisor or by somebody who really knows about the person or the company that is described.  

A good reference letter should fulfill the following criteria :
  1. A good reference letter should be honest.
  2. A good reference letter should specifically describe the positive side and strength of the person or the company being referred.
