I was asked to bring letter of recommendation from the referees when i go for the interview day after tomorrow. I asked for the letter from one of the referee, and he wanted me to write it and he will check it and sign it. Can anyone help in giving the format or the contents of a letter of recommendation from a non related referee for a job.

Hi, Reference letter can be given in two formats: 1.General reference letter. ........................To whomsoever it may concern.................... This is to refer Mr/Miss.................. is known to me from....... to till date,who is residing at.............. I have known him/her past_____ years ago.He/she is very intelligent,active,in our area cultural meetings(to state about your positive qualities with an example.you can write anything you like about yourself like he is a meticulous planner etc.) I would not take a step back in recommending him for the_____________ position. I am sure Mr/Miss________ would be an asset to your organization,and would play a key role in taking your company to newer heights. With this I remain, Thanks®ards, xyz. Personalized reference letter. To Mr.Abc com company xxx-xxx Dear Mr.Abc Rest will be same Wish you good Luck, Calpro

References should be written by the person giving the reference. Otherwise how can they give a true account of your work and yourself as a person? They are just being lazy in my opinion.
