In these tough economic times, I know you are receiving tons of resumes from highly qualified applicants, but I hope you will take a closer look at the one you receive from _________________________.
I have known _________________________ for a number of years, and I can't say enough nice things about him. He is hard working and diligent, and extremely gifted in his field. He will step into his role at your company easily and seamlessly, and you will soon be wondering how you ever survived without him.
One thing that may be holding you back from considering _________________________ is the fact that he has been out of work for some time now. But I don't believe that should be part of your decision. I can tell you with certainty that he has been exhausting every avenue to secure new employment; in this economy, that has been virtually impossible for someone in this line of work, but he has continued to put for the effort day in and day out. I am sure that if you were to hire him, that methodical effort would be applied to the position, and he would flourish at your company.
After all this, I can only say that I enthusiastically recommend that you hire _________________________ as soon as you possibly can. You absolutely will not regret it.
