Re: Letter of Recommendation Request
Dear Ms., Mrs., or Mr. Teacher’s last name,
I would be very honored if you would write a letter of recommendation for me. I plan to obtain a degree in degree name, in hopes of becoming an aspiring News Reporter and Photo-Journalist (job title/career title – be specific).
I understand if you are not comfortable writing me a letter of recommendation at this time. If so, please inform me of areas I need improvement in so I can make favorable changes, in hopes of earning this letter at a later time.
I have attached a copy of my high school resume and autobiographical essay for your use. Thank you in advance for your time and for your consideration.
THIS IS NOT A LETTER UNLESS SIGNED IN CURSIVE
FOUR spaces between salutation and typed name
Always use Times New Roman – 12 font
Full Name (First name Middle initial Last name)
