Regarding Letters of Recommendations [#permalink] New post 16 Jul 2010, 05:25
Hi,
I planning for the intake of September 2011.
I am currently working in an Automobile Designing Company.I have 4 years of work experience.I have recently changed my job around 1.5 months back.
I wanted to know that while filling the applications for any university do i need to get the LOR from my current employer/supervisor also or will the LOR from the supervisor of my earlier organisation suffice?
Waiting for a quick reply.
Thanks

You want the supervisor who can most speak to your abilities. Former (1.5 months ago) or current is fine.

Thanks a lot for your information.I knew that it would be a right forum for my queries.
I hope this means that the universities do not have any kind of preference regarding the recommendations from the previous or the current employer.As far as the LOR matches with what I have mentioned in my application i.e. essays and all,it should be fine.
Please let me know about the same too.

In terms of time frame, you should pick a recommender that can speak about your recent experiences. 1.5 months back is fine. A great manager from 10 years ago would be a little different. Also make sure each of your recommenders can talk about different qualities so you provide the admissions committee with diverse perspectives.
