To Whom It May Concern:

It is my great pleasure to write this letter of recommendation for Mr. John Smith. As the Chairman of Goodwell Co., Ltd., I have closely observed Mr. Smiths professional development over the past two years, and I can state with confidence that he is a motivated and responsible person with a high degree of integrity. As such, I expect that he will be a very positive addition to your institution.

Mr. Smith began working part-time as a Sales Assistant in our companys Feed Department while he was still an undergraduate. In this role, he had a considerable amount of responsibilities, and he handled them effortlessly. He showed his skills to communicate with both customers and the sales staff, and due to his dedication and attention to detail, our company saw an increase in sales during this period.

At the same time, Mr. Smith was studying Business Administration in the university. His academic training and abilities gradually became evident, and after he graduated from the university, we promoted him to the role of Personal Assistant to the Managing Director, as we felt that he had already proven his management and communication skills and would be suitable for this position. He proved us right, and he has become an integral part of our management team.

Mr. Smith takes the initiative to identify problems and devise solutions. His role requires strong communication skills, and he has shown that he not only has these skills, but that he also has the ability to inspire respect and cooperation in teammates. He has also demonstrated that he is a very intelligent person with a mind well-suited to the world of business and management.

Mr. Smith has informed me that he hopes to pursue a masters degree in International Business Management, and I feel that this is an appropriate choice for him. Based on my observation, he clearly has a strong interest in this field, and based on his performance at work I have no doubt that he will meet or exceed your expectations of him. Consequently, I highly recommend him to your masters program, without reservation. If you need any further information about Mr. Smith, please do not hesitate to contact me.
