Here is a Sample Recommendation Letter you may use as a guide to making for a colleague’s reference.
SAMPLE RECOMMENDATION LETTER – If you’re asked by a colleague to make a recommendation letter for his or her personal use, here’s a sample letter.
An additional or alternative to employment reference letters is a referral or recommendation letter from a coworker or colleague. However, how can you, a coworker, can help make a good impression on a hiring manager, supervisor, or selection committee if you’re not among those who set the objectives or the one your colleague is reporting to directly? A sample letter of this is provided below
In making, it is important to review details or information such as what that they’re applying for, the addressee, and the your coworker’s achievements. First off in your letter, introduce yourself and explain your professional relationship.
Include qualifications and skills you think might help him or her and what he or she can add to the new company or university. Also, don’t forget to be professional, polite, and formal in your letter. Put your contact details where they can reach you for further details.

To whom it may concern:
I had the pleasure of working with Tommy Blanco for four years in KNT IT Solutions at the Marketing Department. I have benefited from his tireless work ethic, and willingness to do whatever it takes to create something to help meet certain goals and objectives of the company.
As a writer, he has a strong grasp of the English language and he always comes in handy to help other coworkers in correcting an article and always gives his valuable insight. Everyone in the department respects him and many would always speak well about him.
Working with the company, he has increased our blog traffic and he’s been a key player on our team. Tommy’s skills and leadership qualities would make him an invaluable addition to your content development team. And since our small start-up doesn’t yet have the opportunities for leadership for which he is qualified, I highly recommend him to your company as he will be a great asset.
I believe Tommy’s planning, creating, and marketing skills make him well-suited to leadership. He also has great SEO skills, which makes his writing stand out in the search engines, and not only that, he is also a big help to other employees to grow and flourishes on his team.
