Recently I have got a quite simple but important question regarding Letter of Recommendation as a part of Tier 1 Exceptional Talent Visa application. So I decided to attach a couple of more aspects regarding these significant documents.
Question: “Hi, I am preparing my visa application and need a template of recommendation letter. Can you share it with me? Thanks”
Answer: every Letter of Recommendation is a masterpiece about a particular person. You cannot find two letters with the same text since it catches the eye of Endorsement Panel and if you provide a too descriptive and generic letter (probably, copy-pasted from the Internet) – you will never get an Endorsement.
Hence, if we are talking about Letter of Recommendation (basics are explained here
) but the main idea behind this document is an acknowledgement of the trusted person about your profile as a talent in Digital Technology, who can bring extra energy into the UK’s tech ecosystem.
I must say that you can help your trusted person and provide your draft of Letter of Recommendation and (s)he will improve it. This is not forbidden and it will be a helpful thing for your referee. But again, the foundation of this letter should not be simply found on web-sites – it has to have a description of your projects and why your referee believes in them. It has to have information about your initial meeting or contact and other quite personal details.
And that is why you cannot find any Letter of Recommendation from Tier 1 Exceptional Talent Visa holder in open public access. It is too personal to be shared in the worldwide web.
Finally, I must say that I created two examples of Letters of Recommendation based on real-life successful cases of people who were endorsed by Tech Nation. So if you need more details you can find them here
