The Smoothest Letter of Recommendation You’ve Ever Seen [video]

My dear friend @Marketing_Chap recently tweeted a link to what I believe is the world’s smoothest letter of recommendation. Ever. [tweet this]  Aww – wish it was mine!

“As a soon to be reporter/anchor I was thinking what can I be to be different? And then it hit me. Why not interview your past employers on camera, and put it on your website so you can e-mail it off. And I did! I interviewed, set up the cameras, white balanced, recorded, tracked the audio levels, and edited the video myself”, Katie explains how she came up with the idea of making a video out of her professional references.
