A reference letter is usually written to testify to a person or (occasionally) a company??s skills, character and/or achievements. Sometimes a reference letter is known as a ??recommendation letter??. It is a formal document, and should be typed and written in a serious and business-like style.

Reference letters are used in a wide variety of situations; there is no definitive list that covers all possible scenarios. The most common examples are:

-When a candidate applies for a job, they may need a reference to support their application.

-If an interviewee is given a job offer, they may need to supply a reference letter before the contract can be signed.

-A student applying for an academic course often requires a reference letter to support their application.

-A student applying for funding will often need to supply reference letters.

-Companies may use reference letters as testimonies to their trustworthiness and ability to carry out a job well.

-Prospective tenants may need to provide their landlord with a reference letter, testifying to their good financial status. (This could be from a prior landlord or from a current employer.)
