How to Ask for Letters of Recommendation

Hi speechies!

Today's topic has been highly requested so I'm excited to share it with y'all ☺️ Application season is upon us now that it's October so I give you:

I know it can be daunting to ask for your letters of recommendation so that's why I'm laying out 5 steps to make it a smooth process:

Step #1: Build rapport with who you plan to ask.

Step #2: Set up meetings to formally request your letters.

Step #3: Go to those meetings prepared (dressed professionally and with your folder...folder details are in the video below).

Step #4: Follow up the meeting with a handwritten thank you note.

Step #5: Send reminder emails as necessary.

You can watch the video version below and I go into detail about how to make each step happen. I hope this helps!



  1. When I originally commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four e-mails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service? Cheers! google search engine optimisation 

  2. I think other web-site proprietors should take this website as an model, very clean and great user friendly style and design, as well as the content. You are an expert in this topic! digital marketing trends

  3. I’ll immediately grab your rss feed as I can not in finding your e-mail subscription hyperlink or e-newsletter service. Do you have any? Please let me know so that I may just subscribe. Thanks. Web Design and Web Development
