Sample Personal Employment Reference Letters
When you are applying for jobs, most employers will request references at some point during the hiring process. When you are deciding who to use as a reference, your choices will fall into two categories:
- Professional References – those from people you worked with in a business setting.
- Personal References – those from people you know from your private life.
Why Have Personal References
While it’s a good idea to have references from people who have worked with you – supervisors, colleagues, and staff – it can be helpful to have some personal references as well.
