To Whom It May Concern,
My name is XXXX, and I am the manager of the XXXX Branch of Wells Fargo. I have been with Wells Fargo for more than 20 years. I have had the incredible privilege of knowing XXXX for over a year since I am her supervisor and work with her daily. Thus, it is a great pleasure for me to write this letter of recommendation supporting her application to the Master in Finance Program at the University of California, XXXX. I could not be more confident in Ms. XXXX’s ability to excel in Finance at UC XXXX.
XXXX is a rapid learner with what appears to be a natural talent for problem-solving. I only had to show XXXX how to perform a banking operation once; she did exceptionally well independently. I have long admired her professional demeanor at all times and her willingness to go that extra mile to please every one of her customers. Once I observed her attention to a customer who came into our branch and asked her a question about his tax return. She could have just printed out the tax return and given the document to the customer. Instead, she investigated and learned the answer to his question and explained it to him patiently.
XXXX and the surrounding area have a substantial Asian and primarily Spanish-speaking population to the east of LA. It is easy to appreciate how minorities, taken together, rapidly become a majority in California. Diversity and banking, as in other sectors, go hand in hand. XXXX is unique in this regard because she is also a native speaker of Mandarin Chinese and Taiwanese in addition to English. Moreover, she is making significant progress in learning Cantonese and Spanish. Communication is the lifeblood of finance. Where we live today, our business spans a variety of languages, giving employees like XXXX great added value that has been and continues to be most appreciated. XXXX is highly proficient concerning rules and regulations. She is always attentive and patient with customers; she never stops observing and learning, asking questions, collecting and analyzing information, and formulating compelling and creative ideas after reflection. Her mathematical and analytical skills are as advanced as her language abilities. When XXXX investigates a problem or a challenge, she finds a solution promptly. It would be a pleasure for me to provide you with any further information about this outstanding candidate for the Master’s Program in Finance at UC, XXXX.
