Write a letter of recommendation: Monday Productivity Pointers

Monday Productivity Pointers- Writing a letter of recommendation

This week on Monday Productivity Pointers we’ll be ditching technology and getting back to old school communication: writing letters. Specifically, writing letters of recommendation.

At any point in your life, you may be called on to write a letter of recommendation for someone you know well. It could be for a college application or a new job, but no matter the occasion, one fact remains the same: Someone else’s success is riding on the quality of your letter. In this week’s video, I’ll show you how to write a great letter.

I’ll take you through the structure of the letter itself along with the content, so you’ll know exactly what to do when you’re asked to write one. Watch this week’s video to be prepared—and check back next Monday for more Productivity Pointers.

Learn it from the experts.
