Then, explain how you know the person and why you’re qualified to recommend them. Include specific examples of the person’s qualifications and successes in the body of your letter, then end with a sentence affirming that you recommend the person for the job or position.
Inform yourself about the person you are recommending. Spend some time talking to them about their goals and the position they are applying for. Gather together their current resume, any memos or notes you may have on them, and any other information that will help you as you write the letter. The best recommendations are thorough and specific, and having all the information at hand will make the process much easier.
