Hi everybody,
this is my first letter of recommendation. As I'm not a native speaker I would be really glad if somebody could help me with proofreading and general correction...
Thanx!

To whom it may concern:

X.Y. has been with our companies marketing department for a year. X.Y is one of the largest producers of medical equipment and hygiene products in the . X is taking part in a paid internship program as a Brand Manager trainee. As her manager she is directly accountable to me.

X is responsible for provisions to advertising campaigns and management of promotional materials such as leaflets and product brochures. She was also in charge of developing and capitalizing for some of our new product launch packs. During her work she proved to be creative and responsible. Her field of study has empowered her to offer very useful tips and recommendations concerning our media activities. For example her rating analysis of radio stations has helped us to choose right station and time to reach our target group with advertisements.

Practical theory development within research methods has enabled X to comprehensively prepare surveys and questionnaires for our customer briefs. Last research task X was involved in was our regional mystery shopping project focused on pharmacies. X responsibilities were creating the questionnaires for our mystery shopping agents, general administrative support for the whole project and final processing of the obtained data.

As I’ve outlined above X’s stay within our company has been extremely beneficial to both parties. She is a valued asset to our company. Although we would be sorry to see her go I realize X is a very ambitious young lady and therefore I understand her intentions to carry on with her studies. I wish her all the best in her future endeavours and recommend her with no hesitation for your postgraduate Mass Communications programme at the .

If you have any questions concerning my recommendation or require further information on X’s work performance, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Best regards,

Ing. A.B.
Hi tazeri, and welcome to the forums.

It's not clear if X actually created the advertising campagns, wrote the leaflets and brochures, etc., or if she coordinated their delivery. It's a big difference, but I can't tell from your description.

To whom it may concern: There is a lot of discussion about the use of this phrase. Grammatically it's correct, but some advocate for Dear Sir or Madam:

X.Y. has been with our company's marketing department for a year, working as a paid intern as a Brand Manager trainee, under my direct management. I enthusiastically recommend her to postgraduate Mass Communications programme at the University of Leicester.

[Company name] is one of the largest producers of medical equipment and hygiene products in the Czech Republic. X has worked on advertising campaigns and the creation of marketing materials, including leaflets and product brochures. Her skills and understanding of our business was such that I placed her in charge of developing some of our new product launch packets. She has repeatedly demonstrated both her creativity and her sense of responsiblity. Her studies have enabled her to offer very useful tips and on-point recommendations concerning our media activities. As just one example, her rating analysis of radio stations helped us in our selection of the right station and advertising time slot to reach our target audiences.

X has put into practice the theory she had learned about research methods, preparing surveys and questionnaires for our customer briefs. I'm not sure what a customer brief is. Her most recently research project was our regional "mystery shopper," focusing on pharmacies. X created the questionnaires for our mystery shopping agents and analysis of the data obtained, and also provided administrative support for the whole project.

I'm confident that X’s tenure at our company has been extremely beneficial to both parties. She is a valued asset to our company. We will be sorry to see her move on and continue her studies. I'm also confident in her future success, both in business and academically in your programme.

If you have any questions concerning my recommendation or require further information on X’s work performance, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Best regards, There has also been a lot of comment about closings in letters. As an American, I use "sincerely" for everything, but I think that "Yours truly," is correct in this case. You'll want to confirm that though!

X is lucky that she had a great manager in her internship and should be very happy with this letter.
