Cover Letter for Medical Jobs

A recommendation letter is sent to suggest a candidate for any job profile. In the recommendation letter, you need to highlight the reason, why you wish to recommend the particular candidate. You need to provide the details, whether you were an associate or supervisor or manager of the particular candidate. This letter should always be drafted in professional letter format. Never address the letter as to whomsoever it may concern. It is important to send the letter to concerned person in the recruitment department.

Sending a generic letter would be considered as unprofessional. The letter must be divided into three sections, introduction, body and conclusion. The introduction paragraph should highlight the reason of writing the letter. The body paragraph must place emphasis on the professional details of the candidate you are referring for the job. In the ending paragraph you must thank the concern person for their time and consideration.
