how to write and receive the best letter of recommendation

Get in Touch

Welcome back Dreamers! In this episode, I start the conversation about letters of recommendation with some tips that I have learned or acquired over the years. Chances are you will either need a letter of recommendation or need to write one. I have had experience with both. I am sure this episode will evolve over time but here is the first iteration of it and my first tip episode. I hope the information helps AND let me know if I left anything out. Enjoy!
