The recommendation letter is one of the more misunderstood elements of the typical job application. Oftentimes people don’t know that these letters have very strict specifications, not unlike the resume, and that employers have very specific expectations as well. It’s crucial to know exactly how to approach the general maintenance technician recommendation letter so you know employers are seeing the best you’ve got.

I am writing this letter to recommend David Stanhope for the position of general maintenance technician at your business. David was the resident technician at my mechanical manufacturing business, and he was perhaps the most skilled and reliable employee that I had at that time. He was very creative, problem solving, and efficient, and he always fixed the problem no matter what.
David had to complete diagnostics and troubleshooting, preventative and corrective maintenance, repairs, and other technical component duties on mechanical manufacturing units. Because he had to work with various different machines, he gained a very diverse knowledge and yet was always able to quickly diagnose and repair the problem. Furthermore, his attention to detail ensured there were very rarely mistakes made.
David often encountered complex technical specs and manuals and had to work with unique and challenging machinery, but he always rose to the challenge. Best of all he was the consummate professional, always on time, always doing a good job, and so I recommend him very highly.
