A TACTFUL WAY TO DECLINE TO WRITE A LETTER OF RECOMMENDATION

[DATE]

Dear [RECIPIENT NAME],

I received your request for a letter of recommendation yesterday. While I am grateful that you would think of me, I hope you understand if I decline your request at this time. 

Since I only worked with you for a short time, I would not be able to give you a recommendation that would give justice to your skills and talents. If I may suggest, perhaps you may ask someone whom you have worked closely with for a longer period and who knows your full capabilities. 

I apologize for declining, but I wish you all the best in your endeavors. 

Regards,

[YOUR SIGNATURE]
