Dear Mr. Hipster,
My name is Dr. Ivan Rigby, and I am a professor of Molecular Biology at Illinois State University (ISU). I am writing on behalf of Melvin Tobin, who I believe would make an excellent candidate for the Research Aide position your company is offering this summer.
Melvin is a junior at ISU, and for the last three years he has consistently received the highest grades in his class. Last year, he submitted a research paper, "Mapping the Human Genome," which was published in The Scientist, one of the most prestigious science journals in the country. Recently, Melvin was awarded the Scientific Research Award for his outstanding work in the field of molecular research.
Despite his busy academic schedule, Melvin manages to find time to volunteer at the local elementary school (teaching science of course!), and write for the campus newspaper, ISU News. He is friendly, compassionate, and hardworking, and he is destined for great things. I feel strongly that this young man would be a great addition to your company.

Dr. Ivan Rigby
Department of Molecular Biology
Dear Professor Rigby,
I would like to express my gratitude for the recommendation letter you wrote to Epson Pharmaceuticals and I apologize for the lateness of this letter conveying my thanks.
I have learned more in my brief role as an Assistant Laboratory Technician than I have in all three years at ISU. As you may have noticed, the company was unable to hire me for the position that you recommended because it had already been filled, but I have really enjoyed working as an assistant technician instead. I only have three more weeks before I return to ISU, but the company has already asked that I join their team after I graduate!
They are offering me the position of Laboratory Technician and assigning me to work in the division that researches medication for patients recovering from heart surgery. In addition to an excellent salary, they are also offering me free housing on the Epson Campus, which is located just three miles from Lake Michigan.
Despite recent allegations that the company is producing drugs that do not meet federal standards, I feel this is a great opportunity to work for the largest pharmaceutical company in the country. Thank you once again for helping me get this wonderful opportunity. I look forward to attending your classes next semester.
