Help them help you. Nothing is worse than having to write a recommendation—ask anyone that’s ever had to write one. Or better, ask anyone who’s about to write one.

Help them not do this by giving them a list of talking points with dates and examples that will make it really simple for them. If you really want to be smart about it, write the rec, email it to them and tell them to do with it what they want. Nine times out of 10, they won’t change a word. You have helped them, help you.
