Whom to use for recommendation [#permalink] New post 16 Dec 2011, 09:34
I have worked for 5 years 3 as a resident of cardiology and 2 as an assistant lecturer and I have done lately a 3 week training at an investment bank.
Should both of my recommendation letters be from professors at my cardiology department or get one from the department and the other from the investment bank.

Hi ghanemmohamed,

Thanks for posting. In regards to your question, we often have clients who want to use a professor for a recommendation. If you are not sure whether a recommender is appropriate, think about the types of questions they will have to answer. These questions are frequently linked to your leadership skills, your performance on teams, communication skills, ethics, and more. A professor is usually not in a position to comment on these traits. If the recommender you are considering cannot say much more than “you are highly intelligent” or “you are a hard worker,” he or she is probably not the right choice.

Hope this was of help.
