Dear (Sir/name),

I’m writing to you because I recently received an application from an individual named (Name) and I was thinking about giving them an interview. (Describe in your words). However, I would like to first check on this person’s work history here and confirm that they indeed did work there. (Ask all about your inquiry).

  • Did you previously employ (Name)?
  • What were his work habits, his attendance and responsibilities like?
  • What kind of duties did he carry out on a day to day basis and did he struggle with any of them? (Job type and responsibilities)

While the information would be nice to get as soon as possible, there is no time that I’m essentially looking for a reply; I just want to make sure I hire the right person. (Describe all about the situation). Also, if it’s not too much to ask, could I know why (Employee name) left the company and how much time he gave upon leaving? (Cordially describe your greetings and requirements).All the information here will be strictly confidential between us for the purpose of hiring an employee.

Sincerely,
