  • Letters of recommendation at the closing question of an interview.

    Would presenting a letter of recommendation to each member of the oral board panel after selling yourself benefit or be a waste of time?

    Can’t see that changing anyone’s mind about a candidate.

      Waste of time.

      Total vanity move.

        Do you really think that anyone will ask a person for a "recommendation" that won't be flattering ?

        LOR's are worthless to a hiring board
        Since some people need to be told by notes in crayon .......Don't PM me with without prior permission. If you can't discuss the situation in the open forum ----it must not be that important

        My new word for the day is FOCUS, when someone irritates you tell them to FOCUS

            You NEVER foist things on a board that is not asked for.
            Now go home and get your shine box!

              Unless they specifically asked for them, don't bother.

                Letters are warm and fuzzy and can make you feel good but the folks who have a say have already made up their minds. And the reality of it is that they likely have already done so before you even walked into the room. Sad but true. The only time that i can come up with being appropriate to hand out letters is if it is specifically requested.

                  Nope. If they wanted it, the testing/recruiting instructions would say to bring one. Otherwise it’ll go in the trash.
