How to Give a Good Reference?

Answer

To give a good reference, first ask the candidate to provide you with a list of items he/she would like included in the letter, this will give you a good foundation on which to craft your reference again ask for specific information and dates that are relevant then use a reference letter template if you are unsure of where to start also explain how you know the applicant, in what capacity and the length of time you have known him where this is especially helpful to the reader because it gives an idea of the depth of your relationship and if you have only known the applicant for a short period of time, make the capacity of your interaction the focus of the letter.
