Write a letter to a former teacher. In your letter:

Explain why it is important to you
Suggest what information your teacher could put in the reference

Write at least 150 words.


Dear Madam,

I am writing this letter to request a reference letter from you in relation with a job I wish to apply for.

As I completed my graduation in marketing last month, I had applied for the post of a marketing executive in a reputed company: ‘The Wings’, which is located outside the town. As an inexperienced person in the field, I think assuming this job would be a better foundation for my career. Though the post does not demand for any prior experience, it requires a good communication skill and a reference from the previous academic institution, from where the candidate is qualified. Hence, I should request you to recommend me for the job, by stating that I am a person of good caliber in the field of marketing. It would be also be appreciated if you could state my communication skills are also highly recommended.

I look forward for a prompt positive response.

Yours sincerely,
