Request an Endorsement

  2. Use clear, specific language to request the endorsement (clearly describe what it is that you would like endorsed).
  3. Explain why you are requesting the endorsement, what it will be used for, why you feel that the endorsement is necessary or why you merit receiving the endorsement, and so forth.
  4. Include guidelines for the format, length, or content of the endorsement letter. Also, indicate anything else that the reader needs to do to provide the endorsement, such as filling out attached forms and the like.
  5. Indicate by when you need the letter of endorsement.
  6. Consider providing a preaddressed, stamped envelope with your request letter if the endorsement letter is to be mailed.
  7. If you plan to make a follow-up call to the reader, indicate in your letter when you intend to do so.
  8. Thank the reader for considering the endorsement.

Give an Endorsement
