Directed Letter of Recommendation Requesting Reply
[Individual] has been with our firm for several years. They have been one of our outstanding employees in [name of] department. For family reasons, they are moving to your area and we are truly sorry to lose them. They have all of the fine qualities you would expect from a good employee. Honestly, I feel that any firm that hires them will be quite fortunate.
I believe that it could be mutually beneficial if the two of you could meet once they arrive in [city]. They are mature and, of course, realizes that there may not be any openings at this time.
Shall I suggest that they make an appointment with you? I will be looking forward to your reply.
Very truly yours,
