Coffee Chat: Writing Good Letters of Recommendation
Most all instructors at Michigan Tech will be asked to write many letters of recommendation for students applying for jobs, internships, further schooling, or scholarships.

In this coffee chat, we’ll discuss with members of Career Services Corporate Advisory Board what they value in letters of recommendation. Also we will discuss how best to ensure that our letters have the intended impact.
