Letters of Recommendation

When letters of recommendation are needed for future employment or grant proposals, students should directly contact faculty to ask whether they are willing to serve as referees. If so, students should provide the following:

• adequate advance notice (at least three to four weeks);

• a copy of the job posting or job description;

• a current Curriculum Vitae; and

• an email reminder one week before the recommendation deadline.

It is courteous (and wise) to send referees a complete numbered list of the letters needed, with deadlines clearly indicated AND pre-addressed labels. An electronic copy of this address list is usually appreciated.
