Recommendation Letters

November 30, 2008 8:10am CST
I've been doing freelance writing for a few months now and I particularly specialize in letter writing. One kind of letter that is usually requested is a Recommendation Letter. It can either be for a job application or for a school admission. Few tips to make a good recommendation letter: 1. have lots of positive adjective 2. for each positive description, support it with specific situations/instances to make it sound real and sincere 3. use active verbs 4. create a strong relationship between you and the one doing the recommendation to make the letter sound reliable and true 5. make it brief yet clear 6. don't forget to thank the one reading the letter for his time and seek for his consideration 7. don't forget to give a number of the one recommending, for questions and added information I hope this helps:)

Hi Ganesh44. Thanks for the appreciating.. If you are looking for freelance sites, you can try oDesk or Elance. They have a lot of freelancing job available. You even have a choice on what area/field you like. Compensation depends on the contractor. But on the 2 sites that I mentioned, you'll be able to dictate your rate per hour or per project-based. Therefore, the list of jobs they will be sending you will depend on the your rate and area of specialization. Hope you'd be able to find yourself a good project. By the way, be cautious of scammers.. There are lots of them on the net.
