Letter of recommendation conventions
The effectiveness of your recommendation will increase if its presentation conforms to the conventions of business writing.  If you rarely write letters or are unfamiliar with this style, follow the suggestions below to achieve a more professional appearance.
1) Use a conservative font such as Arial, Times New Roman or Verdana. The font size should be 10 to 12 pt.

2) Ensure borders are 1 to 1 1/2 inches on all sides.

3) If you do not have paper with a letterhead, insert your name, title, organization, and address at the top of the page.

4) Date the letter and address it "To Whom It May Concern" followed by a colon.

5) Leave equal space between each paragraph.

6) For the complimentary close use "Sincerely," or "Yours Truly,".  Repeat your name and title below your signature. Preferably use a good pen with black ink to sign your letter.
