A letter of consideration is a letter that is sent from one party to another seeking extra consideration for a specific position or proposition. Usually, a letter of consideration is sent from a boss or a well known colleague on behalf of a job applicant, vouching for their abilities. Sometimes, letters of consideration are even included in an application package for a job.
Tips for writing a letter of consideration:
- Don’t be forceful: don’t make demands or use an aggressive tone
- State why your opinion should be considered

Dear Mr. Robinson,
My name is Michael Scott, and I am currently a colleague of Bill Flinker, one of the finalists for the job you are trying to fill. I have worked with him for many years, and have witnessed first hand how hard he works and how seriously he takes his job.
I am writing this letter wishing you to grant him special consideration for the job position he is applying for. There is no one else in the world that would make a better head of sales at Tobin Motors than Bill Flinker.
Thank you for your time!
