Character Reference letter


A character recommendation letter is usually written by one who is of authority to give some favorable comments on another individual for a particular purpose that benefits the individual. For example, a teacher may write on behalf of his student who has applied to a higher learning institution or a friend who is of good repute to write on behalf of an individual for a job applied.

A character recommendation letter helps an individual in various ways. It acts as a character certificate and helps that person get through jobs, clubs, projects, etc. easily. It can be a great favor to that person you are writing the letter for. However, ensure that no false or pretentious facts are written in the letter for if found out, it may cause a huge problem to the receiver. Once through the letter, check it for grammatical correctness.
