33. The Job Referral Letter

December 6, 2013.

Re: Letter of Reference
To: Alistair Jenkins

To Whom It May Concern:

John Sanders, my assistant programmer, can always be found
hard at work in his cubicle. John works independently, without
wasting company time talking to colleagues. John never
thinks twice about assisting fellow employees, and he always
finishes given assignments on time. Often he takes extended
measures to complete his work, sometimes skipping coffee
breaks. John is a dedicated individual who has absolutely no
vanity, in spite of his high accomplishments and profound
knowledge in his field. I firmly believe that John can be
classed as a high-calibre employee, the type which cannot be
dispensed with. Consequently, I duly recommend that John be
promoted to executive management, and a proposal will be
executed as soon as possible.

Theo Clark, Branch Manager.

Mr. Sanders was present when I was writing the report mailed to you
today. Kindly read only the alternate lines 1, 3, 5, 7, 9,.......
for my true assessment of him.
