Sample Letters of Introduction
When I saw you last, you asked me to keep an eye open for the right kind of tour guide to
work out of your public relations office. As you put it, "I'm looking for a geologist with a
broad smile." I thought I'd drop you this quick note to tell you about a charming new
student of mine who fits the bill perfectly.
His name is John Doe. A rock hound since childhood, he has impressed professors here at
the university as one of the most diligent graduate students to come through our program in
years. His affable manner suits him well for work in public relations. Just last week I had the
good luck of working shoulder to shoulder with John in the field on an extended trip, and I
can vouch for him as the kind of fellow you want to have along on long shifts or in cramped
quarters. I believe he could brighten up even the dankest coal shaft with his good humor
alone. I thought I first ought to let you know just who's sending him your way, so I
suggested he call you at your office sometime after the weekend. I'm curious to see if your
impressions of him don't match my own. Please let me know if you still need me to keep
looking. I'm happy to be of help.
I was happy to hear you finally decided to build a home. Such a project can be a very
rewarding experience, but it is important that you choose the right contractors. I'd like you
to meet John Doe, the contractor who painted our home. I heard he was the best painter in
town, and now I have good evidence to back up that claim.
I told him you might be calling, but would like to see his work and talk to some of his recent
customers before making a choice. I can't say enough good about John's work and am
confident that you will feel the same.
Last month while attending the convention in Centerville, I met Ms. Jane Doe. She is the
director of marketing for Doe and Associates in Springfield and has been responsible for
marketing several successful products.
She has excellent ideas about how to present our product. I think it would be in our best
interest to talk with her more about hiring her firm for marketing. I am confident you will be
as impressed as I was.
