Dear Mr. Campbell,

This is to notify you that Jonathan White worked with us as Chemistry Professor from September 12, 2003 to February 21, 2011. I would like you to know that Jonathan was asked to resign from job due to his inappropriate attitude towards work. I would not recommend him for any job in your college.

We recruited Jonathan considering his 7 years of work experience in the teaching field. But there were several complaints registered by the student regarding his inability to explain chemical reaction and process clearly. We warned him for his negligence at work and asked him to prepare well before every lecture. Yet there was no change observed towards his attitude at work.

Jonathan was assigned the responsibility to prepare the college students for intercollegiate science project competition, but he was unable to provide necessary guidance to the student. Hence, the student fair badly at the competition. Considering his work experience, we provided another chance gave him duration of 6 months to improve his performance at work, but there were no improvement observed. Hence, we asked him to resign from work.

Thank you for spending your time to go through this letter. I hope that you will consider my request and not recruit Jonathan for any job in your college.

Date: October 11, 2011.

Mr. Lloyd C. Fuller,
Recruitment Head,
Excel College of Management,

Albuquerque, NM 87114.

Dear Mr. Fuller,

I am Lamont G. Matz, Dean of St. John College of Management. I am writing this letter to inform you that do not recommend Ken Barber for any post in your college. Ken worked with our college as a Marketing Professor from July 23, 2010 to April 25, 2011. He was fired from his job due to unprofessional behavior and unethical use of college funds.

Ken had several years of work experience in the marketing field. Hence, we considered that his practical experience in the marketing field will help him to guide the students. At St. John College of Management, we believe in having lots of case studies, so that the students are thorough about their concepts. But Ken could teach in the case study pattern. We provided training and sufficient time for him to improve his teaching ability. But there was no improvement observed.

During the intercollegiate competition we had assigned certain stipulated fund to the marketing student's team, who worked under Ken's guidance. During the yearly audits it was found that Ken had misused the fund assigned for intercollegiate competition. This behavior was totally unacceptable. Hence, we asked him to resign from work. I hope that you consider my request and do not recruit Ken as marketing professor in your college. Thank you for your consideration and the time you spent to go through this letter. I have enclosed copy of his resignation letter and warning letters assigned to him.



Lamont G. Matz,
St. John College of Management
