Employer Reference Letter

An Employer Reference Letter sample from a current supervisor is rare... and if you've searched the Internet for one you know exactly what I mean. 

So the following sample was written for just that situation.

Any company that honestly appreciates your dedication and service would be more than willing to write you a letter of reference.

After all, your company treasures, as well as rewards efficient employees.

Your company is also of the forward thinking that recognizes opportunities for their employees to advance their careers.

We've got the just right words for the right commendation ready for use.


Dear [[Name of Employer/Person]]:

This letter of reference is being provided for Thelma Brown. My name is James Doe and I am the Vice President of Employee Development at XYZ Company...and I am writing to recommend Thelma as a candidate for a position with your organization.

Thelma has been employed with XYZ since January 2005 and is currently a Senior Staff Assistant.  In this capacity she is responsible for supervising the company's office assistants who, under her management, are responsible for the company's clerical and payroll functions.  

Thelma is very efficient.  She has great communication skills (written and verbal), is very organized and can work independently in getting assignments done. Additionally, her department is very productive and her supervisees provide great customer service. 

While I don't relish the thought of losing Thelma as an employee I am supportive of her pursuit of opportunities to advance her career, opportunities that are very limited with our company.  Therefore, I recommend her for consideration for with your organization without reservation. 

If you'd like to discuss this further I can be reached at XXX-XXX-XXXX.
