This is an important document to a former employee who has or is seeking a job opportunity in another organization or admission into an institution. This document may be requested by an organization considering the individual for employment or acceptance into an institution.

The document outlines the name of the person giving the reference and the organization, the name of the former employee to whom the reference letter relates to, the core interests, skills and abilities of the former employee, the position the former employee worked in during his or her employment etc. The reference letter explains why the former employee should be selected for a job or admission he/she is applying for.
