Sample Recommendation Letter for a Promotion

Email Subject Line: John Smith - Recommendation for Promotion

I have worked closely with John Smith for the past several years while he has been employed as the Marketing Assistant in the Communications Office. I have been consistently impressed by both John's attitude towards his work and his performance on the job. His interpersonal and communication skills have allowed him to develop strong working relationships with both our clients and our staff.

John possesses solid writing skills which have enabled him to compose quality correspondence and publications. He also has the analytical skills to diagnose problems and devise viable solutions. His ability to remain calm during stressful periods like the end of the year proves his ability to work well under pressure.

Even though John is a tremendous asset to our office, his expertise, the experience he has gained on the job, and the continuing education classes he has participated him make him a prime candidate for promotion.

I recommend him for a promotion without reservation. Please let me know if you need further information.
