Dear Sir,

I would like to recommend Ross Barkley as a candidate for the position of Financial Advisor with your organisation. For the past six years, I have been Ross’ superior in the finance department at the head office of Virginia Tech. During his time with us, he covered our USA operations, besides assisting me in the managing department.

Ross is a hard-working and lively person, and I have no doubt that he will experience great success wherever he goes. With his outstanding work ethic and computer literacy, he always made sure to deliver results on time. He showed spectacular skill when using office software, and he often helped out his colleagues whenever possible. When managing projects, Ross applied a very structured and methodological approach. He attended numerous internal and external training programs to update his knowledge within his field, and be on terms with the latest software’s and technologies.

Ross would be an asset to any employer and I recommend him without reservations. If any other information regarding Ross is needed, please feel free to contact me on 7897097-88778. I am sure, if selected he will prove to be an asset to your organisation.


Alan Smith

Managing Director
