A reference letter can be a helpful tool in helping you find your next job. Unfortunately though, if you left your role in the heat of the moment, it may not have been the first thing on your mind.
Rest assured that we have not forgotten about it. When we negotiate an employee’s exit package, we work to include a positive reference letter as part of the deal. We also try to make sure that any phone calls made from a future employer are to someone you approve of, and that they will echo the positive tone of the letter. Many companies are hesitant to provide much detail in reference letters (a fear commonly seen in the US) but we push hard to make them happen to your satisfaction.
