6. In what ways could the applicant improve professionally? How does he/she accept constructive criticism?
In the beginning, Joe wasn’t used to working with people in the industry. The terms are different and all the manner of working was different in style to anything he’d ever met. Sometimes he didn’t do all the things he needed to do in the coordination process, but this developed over time. There were mistakes in judgment, such as sometimes bringing over a number of lecturers from the same field, rather than bringing more diversity. Again, this is something that improved over time and with the experience. Sometimes fewer people came to events than were expected, and it turned out to be that the event was just before an important exam so everyone was home studying. Each time a mistake like this happened, Joe would review it and make adjustment for next time. Whenever we gave Joe pointers he immediately adapted his way of going on. He was always willing to listen, and actually welcomed whatever feedbacks we had, to help him to improve and do a better job.

A recommendation letter usually comes with a deadline. Approach people well in advance – at least one month before you need the letter. If the organization asks that letter writers use an official form, fill in your name and other pertinent information. If the person will use his own letterhead, offer him a self-addressed, stamped envelope. Supply him not only with your resume and other information about your qualifications, but also with information about the program or job. For a reference letter, ask two weeks in advance. Give the person information that elaborates on your qualifications or offer to write a draft letter he can use as a model.
