Tips for recommendation letters

  • Who can give a recommendation: You will have to present details of one recommender who can be your reporting manager/ previous manager/ senior colleague/ current client/ previous client/ business partner/ supplier/ auditor etc.
  • It should not be a collection of adjectives. The recommender should add particular situations/examples of your professional work together.
  • Academic recommendations ( from professors/teachers etc) are not confirmed
  • The recommender should send the recommendation from the official email id only. If the recommender does not have an official id – then proof that you reported / or was supervised by this person should be attached.
  • Go by the quality of the evaluation rather than the seniority of the designation
