question regarding LoR [#permalink] New post 16 Dec 2008, 05:11
I have a 5 years of work experience.
first 2 years in company A
second one year in company B
third 2 year in copany C

I need 3 LoR for my application
I am taking one LoR from my current manager in company C.
My question is from whom should I take the second and third LoR?
Will it be good if I take another two LoR from my previous two companies or should I take the remaining two LoR from my current company itself. My doubt is because I have spend two years in the current company so if I take LoR from the previous company then it might have a negative effect because my previous managers are not working with me from a long time.

One more thing I dont have any problem in getting the LoR from any of the three companies. I have very good relations with all my previous and current managers.

Wow, what school asked for 3 LoR? Maybe 1 can come from your colleague and another 1 from your client?

Only Stanford & HBS asks for 3 LoRs (atleast in the top10).

Given your situation :
1) Current Manager - this is mandatory
2) You need to decide which manager would give you a better recommendation letter A or B? Besides, you mentioned either of them should be a problem. Look at who can provide a holistic view and may be highlight something different from what C might mention.
3) I think either client or outside work, if your a part of any organization etc. I would refrain from a colleague.

Try to get a mix of recomenders.

Only one letter HAVE TO come from your current employer. Otherwise, it should be from people who can assess your leadership and managerial potential the best....
