I'm happy to help if you need another set of eyes.
I regularly request references when recruiting and write them for members of my team too.

Also happy to help. Have 25+ years in recruitment/ being recruited and am a dab hand at references.

I have written my own reference, surprisingly difficult to do, and written references for others if you want to send it to me I will read it and offer an opinion.

J I'm not an expert, but didn't want to read and run. I regularly write and receive reference letters, so would be happy to take a look for you. Also, as i'm sure you have done already, if you do a google search for reference letters you can find some templates.

Dear All,

Was made redundant after 10 years. Must write my own references, which I inititally refused. However I got the letter now and it is so meager that I have to end up writing it myself.

The problem is that I have no IDEA how to go about it??? I have rewritten my bosses draft. As this is a reference for a job I had for 10 years and the company might close within a month I must make sure it is properly done.
my company is 110% happy with my work over 10 years and said I can write anything I like, they will sign it.

I have rewritten the draft my boss gave me. Please PLEASE please could someone be so kind and take the precious time to have a look at it for me? Maybe some of you have experience in writing reference letters??
I would be very grateful. Have to give the letter by this monday morning.

thank you ever so much for any help!

Jx
