An employer might ask for your character reference in addition to other employment references. A referrer can be someone who knows you well and can positively attribute to your characteristics. A close friend, family member, colleague, coworkers, etc. also can prove to be a good source as a referral. A character reference letter includes one’s opinion about the person being addressed. A character reference letter accentuates your personality, including your loyalty, credibility, and ethics rather than skills and experiences relating to a specific job. You can make changes as per your requirements.]
