An employment reference letter is the most common type of reference letter. It is different from a recommendation letter because it is addressed "To Whom It May Concern" rather than to a specific individual. The real-life sample employment reference letter below is typical; a general letter from a former employer that confirms the subject's employment and makes broad statements about their suitability for employment.

To Whom It May Concern:

RE: Employment Reference - Tony Rocco

This is to confirm that Tony Rocco worked under my direct supervision as an Insurance Sales Representative from August 20xx to October 20xx.

During this period Tony progressed from sales initiation trainee to fully certified sales representative by the time he left for another job.

I would say that Tony is a hard working individual who learns quickly. He is generally cooperative and can perform well as a member of a team, although he prefers to work independently. He communicates very well orally and is working hard to improve his writing skills. I saw considerable improvement in this area during the last year he was with us.

As a sales professional, Tony was always above the 50th percentile of performers on my sales team. Since he started from scratch only two years ago, and most of his colleagues were highly experienced with strong, established networks, I would say that Tony achieved a lot in his early years as a sales representative.

So, based on what I observed during my two years with Tony, I believe he has excellent potential to become a high-performing sales professional in the insurance business.
