letter template Letter of recommendation for an intern The internship is of utmost importance for the student. By doing an internship in a company, the student will have the opportunity to put into practice the theoretical knowledge he has acquired during his study. He/she can develop these concrete skills in the field. The student can create professional contacts and establish a professional network related to his field of study. What is a letter of recommendation then? First of all, a letter of recommendation is a written reference, usually from a former teacher or employer, that is forwarded to a company or organization to help the candidate obtain the proposed internship position. The typical internship is usually easy to obtain, as it is essentially a non-paying job. However, higher level positions require a letter of recommendation to ensure that the person selected has the knowledge and ability to perform the day-to-day duties of the position. The purpose of a letter of recommendation is to demonstrate that the candidate will be successful in the targeted internship position. The writer should describe how well he or she knows the candidate and should provide a brief description of the candidate and his or her best qualities. Specific examples illustrating positive characteristics and any anecdotes related to the internship responsibilities can be included in the letter of recommendation. While it may be easy to sing the candidate's praises, remember to stay on topic. Try to highlight qualities that will also contribute to the company's success and avoid mentioning humor, appearance or other things that are irrelevant.
