Thank Someone For a Referral or Recommendation

Dr. Mel Luthy, Chief Editor

Sample Letter #1

As you know, I've been in the process of applying for various employment opportunities over the past weeks. Recently, I received a very desirable offer to fill a position at an energetic and exciting company. Although both a resume exhibiting experiences and credentials suited to the job and a successful interview certainly contributed to my success, I feel that your willingness to speak as a professional reference on my behalf played a central role in the company's decision to offer me the position.

I am writing to express my gratitude for your time and consideration in support of my endeavors. Your perspective and encouragement mean a great deal to me. Thank you for all that you've done.

Sample Letter #2

Thank you for taking the time to write me a letter of recommendation. I could not have asked for nicer comments. Your letter paved the way for numerous interviews and a job offer from Doe Corporation, where I wanted most to work. The time you took to write that letter will have a significant impact on my life for years to come. I hope I can reciprocate the favor.

Sample Letter #3

Thank you for your kindness in agreeing to write a letter of recommendation to accompany my application to medical school. I have wanted to study medicine since my biology class in the eighth grade, and have selected extracurricular activities that would be consistent with that goal. My university grades are good, and I have been a volunteer at the local hospital for the past year. I will soon have a preliminary interview with a selections committee, but before that interview I need to secure letters of recommendation.

The admissions committee informs successful candidates approximately four months after the submission deadline. I will inform you of the results as soon as I receive them.

I know it takes a lot of time to write a letter of recommendation, and I deeply appreciate your kindness. I will do my best to deserve your confidence. Thank you very much.

Sample Letter #4

I can't thank you enough for telling Jane Doe about my chef service. The Doe's have signed up for the full service and they know several more people who might be interested. Thank you for taking the time to tell your friends. I'll do my best to deserve your confidence.
