    Default Letter's of Recommendation....?

    I am headed home soon from Iraq and will be starting the process of searching for another job. Several people from my old dept. have offered to write me a letter of recommedation. My question is to those who have been on hiring boards: Do these letters make a difference, and does it make a differnce who writes it ie: Lt, Chief etc.? I want to do all I can to get hired on a deptartment again. I just wanted someone elses input.


    Be Safe,

    Letters don't do much for me. In many years of sitting on oral boards I have yet to see someone bring one that didn't say the candidate was the second coming of Jesus Christ.
    Translated - nobody brings a bad letter of recommendation
