How to Request your Former Employer to be your Reference

Subject Line- Reference Request for ( Your Name)

Dear Mr. Onderi

I hope you are well! How is your family? Or, ——– It was great to see you at the Tech Event last month.

I am currently actively seeking employment as a human resource manager and I am wondering if you’d be comfortable providing a reference for me. Having worked with you for several years at GAP Marketing, I believe you can provide potential employers with specific information about my skills to improve my chances of getting this job.

Attached is my resume. Please let me know if you need additional information to serve as my reference. If now is not an ideal time for you, do not hesitate to let me know.

Thank you for considering my request.
