Dear Mr. Adams

I, Nathan Radcliff am writing this letter to you to make a recommendation for your vacant job position of a junior editor. I recommend Miss Sophia Turner for this position in your reputed publishing house in the capacity of the managing director of Radcliff Publishers. I am sure that she will be an excellent employee for your company and will prove her worth in the months to come.

I have known Miss Turner for the last 2 years, ever since she applied for a summer internship at our publishing company. From the first day onwards, she proved to be a good find for us and performed excellently. Her talent for the English language, hardworking skills and a deep passion for literature makes her a suitable choice for this job. Moreover, she has the right amount of experience needed for the post of a junior editor.

I hope that you will consider her for this job and feel free to contact me for further information.

Thanking you,

Yours sincerely,

Nathan Radcliff
