Request Someone to Write Recommendation

Sample 1

I will be highly grateful to you if you favor me to write a letter of recommendation for the position at XYZ. I have recently applied for the post of senior HR manager at the said company. As I have worked with you for a couple of years on many HR related projects, you are aware of my working capacity and capabilities.

You have been a mentor to me who I believe has observed me very closely, unlike any other individual. The 5 years working experience with you has enriched my growth and made me a responsible individual. There was no better person I could think of for writing a recommendation for me.

I know you are pre-occupied with work but still, if you manage to take some time out from your busy schedule, I will be obliged. Thanking in anticipation.
