Dear Dr. Manikandan,
I am applying for a job as a FIELD GEOLOGIST with an international petrochemical company and I am required by that company to provide the names of two persons as referees in my application.
Since I completed my honours degree with distinction two years back under your tutelage, I feel that you know my work better than any other person and that you are the most suitable person to assess my works. May I use your name as a referee?
I have enclosed a stamped and self-addressed envelope for your reply.
