As you know, that she is away from Job has been unemployed for more than 6 six years because of due to health problems. She had again severe health problems again six months ago due to the side effects which of medicine she was taking after surgery.

    Regards.
    See my amendments above. I have not changed the content but I have corrected the grammar. In my opinion, you should not give so many details about your wife's extensive health problems - honestly, it doesn't make her sound particularly employable. I would say that she has been out of work for six years due to health problems but I would then go on to give more positive statements about her - what she is good at, how she would benefit the company etc.

    Also, you and she must understand that she is going to have to make more effort herself. She can't just do a resumé and then wait for you and your manager to find her a job. I can understand that you want to help her but I think she should have written the resumé and the covering letter herself and that your only role should be to forward those to your manager.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Letter Correction

    I agree with emsr about having the wife, who is applying for the job, to write the letter of application herself. She should focus more on the positives and what she can contribute to the company rather than on the negatives, short of appealing for sympathy.

    Re: Letter Correction

    Hi, Thanks for the correction and this letter is just showing some sympathy but you are right that we should show some positiveness in this letter and mention that she can contribute to the company and can be good asset to the company. I will be much grateful if you can change the letter and include/add some general best senetences in the letter which will be really good letter to send to my Manager. Thanks

    Re: Letter Correction

    We don't know your wife so we can't write her covering letter for her. Only she knows what contributions she will make to the company if they decide to employ her. Ask her to write the letter herself and, if you have time, you can post it here and we will look at it. Of course, it would probably be better if she joined this forum and asked for help with her English herself.

    Re: Review My letter for correction

    I have merged your two threads because your new letter is simply an updated version of your original. There was no need to start a new thread. It will help readers to know what advice you had already been given.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Letter Correction

    Shakil

    This is a letter of recommendation to your employer for your wife to be employed in the company. It is not a resume. A resume contains detailed particulars of a job applicant which includes the biodata, qualifications, work experience, etc.

    What do you mean by "going into the danger zone"?

    What is "doing coop at DRT company"?

    As mentioned, a letter written by your wife would be more effective.
    I am not a teacher.
