Recommendation from current supervisor but only 2 months  [#permalink]

My old supervisor left the company and she cannot refer me because of some personal reasons.

My current supervisor has known me for more than a year but has only been officially been made my manager for the past 2 months.
But he knows me and the work I did very well. Further, he is in touch with the previous manager and she gave very good reviews about me to him. So he does know my performance history.

Should I still get a recommendation from him? Does he have to mention that he has been my manager for only 2 months?
Or should I look for some other person for recommendation?

Hi imdow123,

I understand your dilemma. Your recommenders will be asked about the length of time they have known you. As far as who you should choose, I recommend that you look at your profile wholistically, and select a recommender that can speak in vivid detail about your performance and contributions. Whether that is your current or former supervisor, depends on the strength of that recommendation.

I hope this helps!

Who has observed you MODEL the qualities of teamwork, leadership and problem solving?
Might look to internal client or community organization. I have found the "manager" requirement to be a red herring. Sure the school wants the low-down on you, but is that possible/in your best interest? locate the person who can and will champion you and describe examples of you doing amazing shiz.
