When writing a personal assistant recommendation letter, always indicate whether or not the candidate worked for a private individual or an agency. Any first-hand knowledge you have of the quality of the candidate’s work would also be helpful.
This letter is my official recommendation for Allen Haley as a personal assistant within your agency. For eight years, Allen acted as my personal assistant through his last employer and I could not have been happier with his performance.
Allen is a very business-like individual who shows up to work on time and then wants to get right into scheduling the day. His ability to organize my personal and professional files helped me to maintain a very busy professional schedule. Allen was also very reliable in terms of special projects, which often dealt with traveling out of town. I was extremely upset when his last agency released Allen and would look forward to working with him again.
I have had the pleasure of talking to other former clients of Allen’s and the commendations for his work performance are unanimous. Allen was very well-respected among his clients and there were many of us who trusted him with confidential business details that we would not normally entrust to a personal assistant. Allen is reliable, trustworthy, and the kind of professional you want representing your firm. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or require any other information.
