.To whom it may concern:
This to certify that XXX was employed as a bookkeeper from November 2006 till October 2007 in MMM at MMM. She began as a bookkeeper and continued to serve with increasing skill in that capacity.
XXX´s responsibilities were primarily in the following sectors/fields:
Preparing accounts receivable, accounts payable, and payroll
Maintaining patron stock records, the general ledger, and office records.
During xxx's service with us I, like many others in the department, came to know and appreciate her. Very goal-oriented, XXX was always punctual, yet easy going. She was very much a people-person. XXX also demonstrated from early in her tenure that she understood what business is all about. She was well organized, she kept a sharp eye on the bottom line, but realized too that customer satisfaction is what makes or breaks your business. I suppose doing well in business is easy if you are, as she was, efficient by nature. [remove this - does not add anything]
I would like to be very clear about why XXX is no longer with us. XXX is available for new challenges only because of her desire to learn and grow further. We would have loved to see her stay, but certainly understand her need to advance beyond the positions we have available.
In closing, let me say I have no hesitation in recommending XXX XXXX for any position pertaining to zzzzzzz. I feel confident she would be an asset to any organization.
[no end salutation]
