Mr. Henry W. Jones, Hiring Manager
123 4th Street, Anytown, US 12345
Dear Mr. Jones,
I recently learned that Alexandra Shannon is interested in working with Anytown Corporation and am pleased to voice my support for her as an applicant for the position of Regional Sales Manager.
I first met Alexandra nine years ago at Anytown Auto, where I was the hiring manager. I hired her as a salesperson and worked with her for 5 years. I know her on both a professional and personal level, and it’s been a pleasure watching her career progress.
In the years since she was hired Alexandra has worked her way up in the company, first to Assistant Sales Manager, then Sales Manager, and finally the General Manager of Anytown Auto. This level of success has occurred due in large part due to Alexandra’s personality and communication style. Over time, I have observed how people are drawn to her; she has a warm, engaging manner which also manages to be tactfully direct and easy to understand.
Alexandra is well-versed in the purchase, management and sales aspects of inventory. She also has a strong business acumen and intuitively knows how best to manage her staff, appeal to the consumer, and create effective marking that results in a profitable bottom line.
Last, and perhaps most importantly is Alexandra’s character. She is conscientious, with a high standard of conduct and sense of responsibility. She is also well-known and trusted within our community, and her sterling reputation and highly professional conduct will be an asset to any company lucky enough to employ her. I personally admire Alexandra and look to her as a model of what can be accomplished through hard work and dedication.
There is absolutely no question that all these qualities would translate in the best possible way to any work she would do with Anytown Corporation. If you have the opportunity to offer Alexandra a position with Anytown Corporation, I encourage you to take it.
Please feel free to contact me if there is any further information I can provide.
