Student or Learner
I am applying for a scholarship at my job and I need a recommendation letter from my boss this is what I am sending him to get it I have never wrote anything like this so i need to know that it is okay and not embarrassing and plain dumb.
Dear Mr. Ramirez,
I am writing to ask if you would write a letter of recommendation for me. My name is [real name removed] and I am one of your wonderful employees working as a Cashier at Frontline in the Forty Niner Shop. I have been a student at California State University of Long Beach for three years and my major is Family Life Education. It involves me helping troubled families, couples, kids, basically anything in the family. I am asking for your recommendation because I am applying for the 49er Shops Student Employee Scholarship Program and a recommendation from my Manager or Supervisor is required.
I am applying for the 49er Shops Student Employee Scholarship Program because I need all the help I can get so that I can finally get ahead with my studies and really be able to push my self even further to exceed. I am more than just a student and a cashier, to my family I am a role model and a hard worker and I push everyday. It has not been easy at home over the past couple of years but it has not stopped me from trying to get internships and experience in the field that I am interested in, which I am proud to say that I will be starting my internship in the Fall 2014 semester. I have applied to what I have learned in my courses at home and now I have the chance to help other. I came from a school that did not care for education and entering Cal State Long Beach was hard because I was required to take classes to prep me for college courses, it was embarrassing but my lack of knowledge is not going to stop me in getting ahead in life.
Thank you so much for your time I greatly appreciate it.
