Letter of Recommendation - FAQS & Answers

Q. How do I get a letter of recommendation if I've been out of school for a while?

A.Though a few years may have passed since you graduated college, you should try contacting your professors. Professors keep records on students for years, so you might be pleasantly surprised to find a professor or two who can write on your behalf. <p>Enroll in a class or two so that you have a chance to get to know faculty -- and they have a chance to get to know you. Excel in those classes and volunteer to help the faculty with their research and you'll be on your way to a great letter. <p>Ask a supervisor or employer to write on your behalf. A supervisor can write about your work ethic, enthusiasm, maturity, and life experience. The trick is ensuring that your referee understands what graduate admissions committees are looking for in applicants. Provide your referee with all the information he or she needs to write an excellent letter.

Include a description of your work-related experiences, why you wish to attend graduate school, your skills and abilities -- as well as examples of how your current work demonstrates those skills and abilities.
