   Character Reference for Terminated Employee

I am writing this letter as an unequivocally positive reference for {Name}. I was {his/her} {managing title} at {Company} from {date} to {date} and found {him/her} to be a goal-oriented, enthusiastic worker with an excellent drive and strong attention to detail.

Although {he/she} was terminated from {his/her} position as {position} after only {amount of time}, this was due to circumstances out of my control. The company was {cutting the budget/going through layoffs/downsizing the department/eliminating jobs} and {Name} was simply a victim of cutbacks. The termination does not reflect in any way on {Name}'s capabilities, work ethic or people skills.

By performing well at {brief description of Name's accomplishments}, {Name} has proven to be aptly suited for {desired position}.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any further questions.
