“I would like to give my highest and unqualified professional recommendation to Erin Robertson. Erin is a student in the highly competitive honors undergraduate research program in the marketing department at Virginia Tech. As a part of this program she worked as a research assistant under my supervision during the Fall 2011 and Spring 2012 academic year helping conduct laboratory research examining the psychological underpinnings of consumer behavior. The honors research program is highly selective; only students with a 3.5 GPA may apply, and applicants must undergo a rigorous interview process before they are admitted. It was a true pleasure to work with Erin during this time. She is an outstanding student and was a very valuable member of our research team. I thought her analytical abilities were impressive and I appreciated her “can do” attitude. She was extremely responsible and responsive and she demonstrated a high level of intellectual achievement and creativity during that year. It was a true pleasure to work with her and I would give her my highest professional recommendation.”

“It has been a great pleasure working with Erin. She possesses the necessary verbal and interpersonal skills needed to effectively work as a leader and team member. She has a great personality and is also well liked and respected by her peers and the faculty. I believe that Erin is a talented and creative individual. Her ability to express and comprehend is augmented by an equally strong ability to listen. Erin is very bright and also has the skills necessary to assimilate new information, and produce solutions.” August 9, 2012

“To Whom It May Concern:
Erin Robertson has been an Intern for 8 weeks at the Reston Museum in Reston, VA. She was hired to do three things:
1. Enter our archive collection into a database
2. Photograph and enter all objects in our collection into the database
3. Create a special “take away” project dealing with the Museum and young children.
Erin’s work exceeded our expectations. She finished all the assigned tasks, and created a delightful, innovative, and “fun” video for children who will visit the Museum. Erin has worked quietly and efficiently and was a pleasure to have as part of our Museum team.
We wish her well in her continued studies. We would be happy to talk with a future employer about Erin and her work here at the Reston Museum.
