I have recently applied for a position as <position> at <company name>. Their hiring procedures require three letters of recommendation from a former employer or educator, and I was wondering if you would be good enough to provide me with one of those letters.
If you would be willing to do so, please briefly describe any qualities which you feel would make me a productive employee in the <your field> field. Please include any specific work you feel I did on specific projects.
Please send the letter directly to <name> at <company name>, <address>. If for some reason you cannot write a recommendation or you will be delayed in sending it, please contact me at <phone number>.
Thank you very much for your help.
