    job

    Is there any teacher to correct the following passage and thanks in advance?

    I am happy to see almost 10 years. There is no change in your personality and appearance you look the same as 10 year ago. But I find your health is improved as compared to 10 years back. I recommend Naz who is trying to get a job to a reputable organization. Please accommodate him in your company and somewhere else.

    Re: job

    I have corrected the grammar, but it still doesn't make sense because you seem to be addressing two different people/issues here !.

    I am happy to see you after almost ten years. There is no change in your personality and appearance and you look the same as you did ten years ago. However, I find your health has improved as compared to ten years back.

    I recommend Naz who is trying to get a job with a reputable organization. Please accommodate him in your company or elsewhere.

    Re: job

    If you want to write somebody a personal letter that is one thing. If you want to write a job recommendation for somebody that is another thing altogether. Also, you should say:

    I was happy to see you after almost ten years.

    Sometimes the present tense just doesn't make sense in a letter.
