Character Reference Closing Statements

Closing statements are actually the easiest part of any character reference letter. Like in an essay, a closing statement should just reiterate what you've already said in previous parts of the letter. It shouldn't bring up any new or surprising information, and it's not the place for lengthy anecdotes (those should go in the body paragraphs).

A good closing paragraph does two things:

  1. It reinforces the candidate's good qualities so that they stick in the mind of the reader, and
  2. It acknowledges the reader's time and concerns

Sample: "Jacob Perez will be greatly missed at XYZ Inc., but we're glad to see that he's directing his incredible talents toward a company as innovative as yours. Thank you for your time and consideration."

That's about it. You can even trim it down if you feel like you've said everything you need to say, which allows the conclusive paragraph to focus more on the reader.

Sample: "Thank you for your consideration. Please feel free to contact me at (555) 123-4567 if you have any further questions."
