To Whom it May Concern:
It is with great pleasure that I am writing this letter of recommendation for Mr. Anthony Graves.
Mr. Graves is in the process of earning his Masters Degree of Science in Education with a specialization in Instructional Technology. I anticipate that he will earn this degree by August of 2011. I serve as his Program Advisor, mentor, and instructor for several courses at Purdue University, Calumet.
Mr. Graves is a very intelligent and enthusiastic individual. His timely and thorough preparation for coursework enables him to intelligently discuss and debate issues, while his effective collaboration with professional colleagues contributes to his reputation in our program as a team player. His dedication to excellence is obvious! He has a great attitude, a strong work ethic, and exceptional skills. He offers the best of what he is in order to advance the organization at which he works.
Professionally, Mr. Graves possesses the specialized background, superior communication skills and experience to succeed at whatever he chooses to pursue. It is his unique combination of skills, which includes a strong background in information technology that will be complemented by a degree in instructional technology, that makes him the ideal candidate for a technology career*.
Among his many assets, he has website development, programming, and database expertise. Plus, he has worked in technology support in a variety of situations. While I have not observed him in these situations, I have observed his class interactions; he is quite willing to assist fellow students and faculty whenever his expertise is needed.
I am certain that Mr. Graves will bring the same level of preparedness, determination, and energy to your organization. Mr. Graves has definitely earned my highest recommendation.
