To Whom It May Concern:

I would like to recommend Carman Du Toit as a candidate for a position with your organization. In her position as Senior Receptionist, Carman was employed by Paarl Media Cape. Carman did an excellent job in this position and was an asset to our organization during her tenure with the office. She has excellent written and verbal communication skills is extremely organized, can work independently, and is able to follow through to ensure that the job gets done.

During her tenure with our company, Carman was responsible for supervising the department office assistants. These assistants, under Carman's management, were responsible for many of the office's basic administrative and clerical functions.

Carman effectively scheduled and managed several assistants to maintain efficient office operations.

She developed these assistants that led them to become well versed in office operations in half the time they used to.

Carman was always willing to offer her assistance and had an excellent rapport with the many constituents served by our office including clients, employees, and other professional organizations. Her ability to effectively communicate with all these people via email, on the phone, and in person made her such an asset to our office.

She would add value to any company, and I recommend her for any endeavour she chooses to pursue. Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Yours truly,

Kelvin Pillay

Managing Director
