To Whom It May Concern: It is with great privilege that I write to you in recommendation of Marty McFly.

Until recently, I have been Marty’s direct supervisor. I have found him to be a pleasant, generous person who is never afraid to take on a challenging task. He has been one of our most dedicated employees. Marty is an independent, self-directed person who is able to communicate effectively and meet even the most demanding challenges. During his three-year tenure here, he set an unprecedented record in portfolio growth. Marty’s stock picks averaged returns 500% higher than the S&P, much to our competitors dismay. While his on the job performance has been nothing less than stellar, Marty has also become a close friend to many of us. We pride ourselves on our corporate values and close knit community, and in this area he truly shines. Marty, along with his father George, have organized many family picnics complete with story telling and live music. Marty is not only gifted in his uncanny ability to foresee growth opportunities, he is also a very talented musician! Though we are all deeply disappointed to lose Marty, I highly recommend him for employment with your organization. He is a team player, a great person and an absolute financial genius. Best Regards, Scrooge McDuck President McDuck Financial Services Sample Character Reference Letters Dear Mr. McDuck, I have known Gilbert Lowell for 20 years. He has been a friend, a confidant and a business partner. Just recently, my wife and I named him the god father of our new born son. Gilbert is incredibly intelligent and is an amazing leader. I first met Gilbert when he was the president of my college fraternity, Lambda Lambda Lambda. Not only did he led our chapter to academic success, but we also managed to take control of the Greek Council under his direction. After graduation, Gilbert and I became business partners and started a small calculator accessory manufacturer. His financial intelligence as well as his leadership has made our firm the 2nd largest vendor at the Brevard County Super Flea every Sunday afternoon.

It is with great pleasure that I write to you in recommendation of Gilbert Lowell. He is a honest, caring individual who will make an extremely valuable asset to your organization. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. Sincerely, Fred Palowakski Friend of Gilbert Lowell Sample Recommendation Letter for Graduate School To Whom It May Concern: It gives me immense pleasure to write in recommendation of Alvin Seville for admission to your graduate program in Applied Mathematical Marketing. I have known Alvin for three years, and have instructed him in four separate courses. I have also served as Alvin’s academic adviser for the last two years. Alvin has routinely ranked in the top 10% of his class, and is consistently one of the top students in each of his individual courses. He is hardworking, energetic and curious. I have no doubt that he will succeed in his future academic endeavors. Last semester, Alvin and his brother Theodore presented their mathematical model for determining sales patterns amongst video game magazines. Not only did this project earn him top honors, Barnes & Noble took notice and has now hired Alvin on for a summer internship. This project was carried out during the course of one semester, demonstrating Alvin’s strong work ethic. I have no doubt that Alvin will make a tremendous impact on the world at large. I am positive he will make outstanding contributions to your program. Regards, Dr. Rebecca Miller Professor, University of Central Florida
