Dear Mr. Wang,

I write this letter on behalf of Jason Bright who would like to apply to THE Software as a software developer. He has been working with me from July 10, 2015 to January 32, 2021 as a software developer in my small start-up software company. He is responsible for gathering requirements, analyzing and designing a web using the latest variety of technologies.

During his employment, Jason never failed in any tasks I assigned him. He has always been an impressive software developer. Not only he finishes his work on time, but he is also able to satisfy our client. He has always been a fast learner. There is never once he doesn’t know about a term in technology since he always keeps himself updated with the latest technology and software.

Jason is a good communicator; he is able to make our client—who is not tech-savvy—understand about our products well by using simple words. Our clients always ended up praise him and recommend our products to other companies. Our company is thankful to him, but we understand that his passion for coding cannot go wasted in my small company.

In conclusion, I strongly recommend that Jason is required to join your company. Jason will be  a beneficial asset you do not want to lose. With the right guidance, I can assure you that he will soon excel in an upper-level position. For further details regarding this matter, you can contact me at (000) 000-0000 or
