A recommendation letter is usually written by former employers or supervisors or by somebody who really knows about the person or the company that is described.


Recommendation letters are usually required when we apply for a job , enter a college, and continue our education.  Sometimes the recommendation letters  play very important role,  even in some cases  recommendation letters  can determine the success of an application.  Recommendation letters are usually given by the supervisor or mentor or employer if we ask for them.

Writing a letter of recommendation is an easy thing. Actually, policy in writing the best recommendation is to write honest facts. Just write what is in accordance with what we see and believe. However, if the person who will be recommended has a bad mental aspects or bad performance and  achievement,  write a recommendation letter for him or her in wisely manners. This way, we would maintain our own reputation and avoid disappointment to all parties. Instead of writing  a fake recommendation letter, use a flexible language to convey what we see.
