Sample Letter Of Reference
23 November 2014 - Reference or Recommendation... How to choose What IS the difference between a letter of reference and a letter of recommendation?

Sometimes either one could serve your purpose. Sometimes one can serve the purpose of the other. But maybe this simple tutorial will be of some help. A letter of reference is useful when you are applying for a job or a course of study. It is used more often when one is making a lateral career move or trying to get a promotion in your specific field.

Sample Letter Of Recommendation For Scholarship
15 November 2014 - To Whom it May Concern: I am writing this letter to offer my sincerest recommendation in favor of STUDENT NAME as a recipient of SCHOLARSHIP AWARD. In the years I have known this student, it has been my privilege to watch him grow in three areas that exemplify his worthiness of the honor you'd bestow.

He has participated in various non-co... read more
