Letter to Recommend Ben for a research/teaching assistant to his Professor
Reference Letter For a Research Assistant
My friend Ben wanted me to help him get a job with his favourite professor this year. He's trying to get a really relevant on-campus job because his last assistant position was with a professor in another field. I changed their names for privacy.
Dear Dr. Murray;
My name is Natalie King and I am pleased to call Ben Meyers my friend. We attended college together and have remained close since graduating, despite living in different cities. He told me he has applied to be your research assistant this semester, and I want to support his proposal.
During college, Ben and I were in a few classes together, and our joint studying always helped me see a different way to take in and retain the information. His insight into readings helped me when I was stuck on several occasions. He never had any problem stretching his limited student budget to keep us both in sandwiches and coffee until I could pay him back. His writing and research clarify and lay out facts in a very readable, organized fashion.
In the summer, Ben took internships that he had very seriously. More than once, on a job he knew would not be permanent, he worked like he'd built the company with his bare hands. When he decided to continue on for his teaching degree, I knew he would be a wonderful teacher.
I would recommend Ben as your assistant because he's enthusiastic, smart, energetic and generous. When he takes on a task you can be sure he'll complete it with great results.I think you can trust him to make your project better with his input. He cares about students, both his peers and his advisees. Please feel free to contact me if you like. Thank you.
