    [FONT=&quot]Testimonials usually form part of the application documents. In most of the cases today, initially a candidate applies for a job with the Covering Letter and Resume. If the employer then shows interest, the supporting documents (Testimonials, Educational Certificates, Portfolios etc.) are submitted.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]There are two types of testimonials:
    1. Employment Testimonial
    2. Educational Testimonial[/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]The employment testimonial is usually issued by the former supervisor (this superior can also be several hierarchical steps above the direct superior). In most cases the testimonial consists of these parts:
    1. Duration and position the employee has worked for and the relationship to the person writing the testimonial (e.g. “As the divisional manager of the sales team, Jonathan was reporting to me.”)
    2. Major projects undertaken during the employment period. Particular achievements pointed out.
    3. Performance during the tenure
    4. Thank you note and wish for future success of the employee[/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]The educational testimonial is usually given by a professor at university or other academic staff. This kind of testimonial is mainly used for applications of fresh graduates for their first job or for internships. It consists of the following parts:
    1. Duration since when the academic staff has known the student and which subjects have been taught.
    2. Academic performance (often in relation to peers)
    3. Social characteristics of the student
    4. Recommendation of the student for future employment[/FONT]
