General Advice for Writing a Reference Letter

First, when asked to write a reference letter, think carefully before saying “yes.” Only say yes if you feel you can write a strong reference letter for the candidate.

The concluding paragraph of the reference letter contains an offer to provide more information. Include a phone number within the paragraph. Also include your phone number and email address in the return address section of your letter or in your signature (if it is an email, include your contact information underneath your name in the signature). See a sample signature below:
