- Your younger neighbor, relative or family friend might ask you for a job recommendation if he or she is looking for his or her very first work. Often you have little to recommend about them except for their passion and their qualities. The most useful approach is to provide a lot of real and specific information about what you truly know about their work habits and ethics.
- Recognize the person that ask your recommendation. Point out that he or she asked for the recommendation.
- Tell them about your relationship with the individual.
- List down the reasons why you think that the person you are recommending can do well for the job. Give a lot of real and accurate information.
- Describe the youth's personal characteristics and aspects of integrity.
- End with a final confirmation and tell them that they are welcome to ask for more information and specific queries.

Dear [Recipients Name],
I have the results of my research on the products you gave me last week. I think I have done a thorough job and have conclusive answers for you.
The She brand nail polish went on smooth, and the color was great, but it dried slowly. It began chipping after only a day of ordinary wear. I would rate this one a four on our current rating scale.
The Hensel brand polish streaked on the first coat. However, the second coat went on smoothly and beautifully, and the color was vibrant. It dried quickly and was very shiny. It wore for five days without chipping that is what the manufacturer promised. I would rate it an 8.
The Egomaniac went on like glass, dried quickly and did not even need a second coat. The color was beautiful and lasted five days without chipping. I would rate it a 9.5, losing half a point because the cost is very high.
With all the research, it's apparent the Egomaniac nail polish stood up to our most important criteria.
It was a fun research project, and I hope you will consider me for others in the future.

Further things to consider when writing recommendation letters to consumers
Recommendation letters are letters written to provide information about your work or academic capabilities. These letters are written by your previous employers, colleagues, teachers, or any other person who can recommend your work or academic performance. The main objective of recommendation letters is to verify the aptitude, skills, and achievements of the person being recommended. They discuss the qualities and capabilities that make you the best fit for a given position or school program. Usually, these letters are sent to hiring managers or admissions officers to facilitate interviews or introduction of new candidates.
Writing recommendation letters is a huge responsibility that should be taken seriously. Therefore, before you agree to the task, you need to make sure that you understand what the letter will be used for and what information is expected from you. Begin by letting the recipient know that this is a recommendation letter. Explain how you know the candidate and how long you have been in a relationship with him/her. Give an evaluation of the candidate's skills and accomplishments and explain why he/she will be effective and productive. If necessary, give a personal testimony. End by reiterating your recommendation of the candidate and sign your name.
Letters to Consumers
Letters to consumers are letters sent to people who purchase goods and services in retail for their own use. These could be response letters from companies to respond to claims, requests, or queries from consumers. They could also be inform letters to notify consumers of the best products on the market or about the termination of a previously offered service. Letters to consumers are formal and are usually printed on the company letterhead. Depending on the issue and the nature of the content, the letters can be addressed to specific people or generalized for all consumers.
Letters to consumers usually follow all the rules of formal letters. First, the senders' and the recipients' addresses must be well stated and placed properly in the letter. Then, the subject of the letter must be clearly stated so that the recipient can quickly know what the letter is about even before he/she reads it. When it comes to the content, be concise but thoroughly discuss the subject. Mention any action the recipient is supposed to take and why this is important. If there are any enclosures, explain them briefly in the letter. Close the letter with your name, signature, and job title.
