I have a few interns finishing up their service later this year, and I was wondering how useful it would be to create a general letter of recommendation for them that they can file away and pull out whenever they need it. Do employers these days accept these, or will they want tailored recommendations sent directly to them.
Also, if I were to have a senior staff person / political appointee sign the letters, would this be useful, even if they were not directly involved in supervising the interns? I would like to send them into the world with something that might impress future employers. Any thoughts?
