Question about Recommendation Letter [#permalink]

One of the Recommendation Letters that I plan to use is from a science researcher, whom I worked at my first job as a Programmer Analyst at UC Berkeley. At the time, she was a Post-Doctorate research leading the research initiative and I was working closely with her to use support her analysis.

She has moved to Korea for another research opportunity since 2006. I have recently reached out to her regarding the recommendation letter. She told me that she's just had a new newborn and she's currently unemployed. I just wonder how it would affect the effectiveness of the letter provided with her current status. Thanks.

As long as she emphasizes what was she was doing when she supervised you and her qualifications to compare you with other applicants (because she has experience supervising others as well) then she should still be able to write a good letter of rec. The fact that she is now a mommy shouldn't make any difference.

Best,
Linda
