Some companies and organizations have policies and procedures for the use of letters of transmittal. The sender should ensure that the appropriate person signs the letter, especially if it accompanies a document or content that requires a certain level of authority for approval or release. The original letter of transmittal, which is placed on top of the accompanying document, should not be attached to the accompanying document or included in its table of contents. Copies of the letter of transmittal are kept for the sender’s files.
Because you are well-liked and respected, both within the business and the community, I feel that a letter from you would make a significant impact. In addition, you know me personally and are familiar with my skills, experience, and work ethic. You are, therefore, in a key position to write a thorough and honest letter of recommendation for me, and I ask you to please consider my request. It is very important that I have a strong letter of recommendation, and I am confident that you are the right person to provide it. Please feel free to contact me for any additional information at your convenience. Thank you in advance for your help and cooperation. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
