Dear Ms. Jones:
I am pleased to write to you on behalf of John Doe, who is applying for a job
to work at your grocery store. I have known John for two years. He did yard
work for me for two summers. More recently, John worked for me at the Corner Drug Store.
John was an energetic yard worker and a great employee at the Corner Drug
Store. He was always on time, cheerful, and friendly to the customers. He
to stock the shelves and assisted me at the checkout station. John was a loyal and hard worker. For example, he stayed past his regular closing time several
times to help sweep the floor.
John can use the valuable skills he learned at the Corner Drug Store in the
job that he is applying for at your store. In addition, he is eager to learn
new skills that
will build on those he learned at the Corner Drug Store. In my view, as someone who has supervised John, he would be a valuable employee for your store.
John is an independent self-starter. While he has no trouble working in
groups, or interacting with others, he can also work well on his own.
Furthermore, he is
mature and personable. I would expect him to perform well in any retail environment. In fact, his personality and skills should take him a long way in his career.
I strongly hope that you will consider his application.
