- 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],
Knowing who to trust to service your air conditioning unit is tight. I faced this dilemma last summer when the temperature outside was resting easily at the 90-degree mark. One morning my wife and I woke up sweating and uncomfortable. I checked the thermostat and realized that the unit had gone out overnight. I worried about the cost but knew a solution was needed right away!
A friend of mine recommended Allen Brothers Heating and Air Conditioning. I called them and explained the situation. We set up a time for them to take a look at the unit and I put pencil to paper, trying to figure out how to pay for the new unit I was sure I was going to need.
Jessie Allen showed up that day, a smile on his face and a clipboard in his hand. He took a look at both the inside and outside units, explaining everything to me as we went along. Sadly, the unit was beyond repair.
Jessie empathized with the fact that our one-year-old granddaughter was staying with us and promised a new unit within the next 24 hours. He also offered me a financing program with attractive terms through his company. I was floored! His quote had been reasonable enough, but now he was offering me the ability to pay out the work! And, that work was going to be done quickly!
A day later, cold air was blowing again, and everyone was happy. Allen Brothers did everything they promised, and they were friendly the whole time!
My advice to you is to put Allen Brothers on your speed dial! They will more than do the job for you!

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.
