Dear Sir

Re: Recommendation Request

I trust that this letter finds you well. I am one of your graduates from the class of 2010. I am writing to request a recommendation from you to assist me in my career advancement.

After my graduation, I worked as a curator for the local museum. I have learned a lot during my ten months of employment, applying a lot of history knowledge which I gained under your tutelage. I am glad to have paid attention to your history information.

Now, I would like to advance my career with an international museum which requires a recommendation from my professors. You are my preferred recommender as I did well in your subjects and you know me well.

Thank you for your kind consideration.

Yours sincerely

Carl Ramsey
