A recommendation letter is a common supplement for many types of applications. This document is intended to provide additional insight as to what makes the person in question qualified for the applied position. Ideally, the recommendation is a non-biased yet favorable opinion from a trusted source that will paint a picture of the applicant not seen elsewhere in other application documents.
