A Letter of Recommendation

Dear Hiring Manager:

I write you today on behalf of the graduates of Emory University in the Classes of 2020 and 2021.

If you are looking to recruit employees who are resilient, dynamic, empathetic, forward-thinking, creative, and driven, then I recommend you consider our thousands of graduates who completed their Emory degrees under extraordinary circumstances. These graduates have mastered subjects in the arts and humanities, natural and biomedical sciences, as well as business, law, theology, nursing, and public health. They spent years completing rigorous academic and professional programs that are ranked among the finest in the world. 

Each one of them aspired to achieve a long-held dream—to earn an Emory degree. And when a global pandemic forced them to leave campus last year, they balanced coursework with family responsibilities, adapted to online learning, and reconfigured their lives. 

They did not waver. Instead, they pulled together—not only to continue thriving in their education but to support one another and maintain their community and shared purpose in spite of everything they faced. 

The graduates of the Classes of 2020 and 2021 brought new meaning to the Emory mission—to create, preserve, teach, and apply knowledge in the service of humanity—and I couldn’t be prouder of them.   

I know you are looking for talented, high-performing employees, innovative leaders, team members and team builders, and that’s exactly who our Emory graduates are. They have my highest recommendation.
