You are applying for a job and you need a letter of reference. Write a letter to a former boss.
• Describe the job you are applying for
• Say what you want included in the reference letter
• Request that your former boss send you the letter by the end of the week
I am writing this letter to ask if you would kindly write me a letter of reference. I have recently applied for a job in the education industry. More specifically, I am hoping to teach underprivileged students in Colombia.
Let me explain in more detail, there is a program for teachers to spend a year abroad teaching English and other basic subjects to students from impoverished backgrounds. You have known me as a teacher for the last three years. You could describe, not just my teaching skills but also things like my hard working and amicable personality. In addition, it would be helpful if you could mention the fact that I can speak Spanish fluently, as this is a key requirement for the job.
The job application must be sent by the end of the week, so I hope you can give me the letter before that. I wish to submit my application soon, therefore I hope you can write this letter as quickly as you can.
Hoping to hear from you soon.
