Subject: Recommendation Letter — Employment at “The Dosa Guys” (11th October 2022)
To whom it may concern,
I, Rahul Kumar, owner of the South Indian restaurant “The Dosa Guys” in Surrey, BC, hereby certify I have hired Ramesh Achari as head chef at my company on 15th August 2022. Their position will fall under NOC code 6321. Mr. Achari will be working full-time with a workload of 48 hours per week. As head chef at The Dosa Guys, they will:
Plan and direct food preparation and cooking operations
Estimate food and labour requirements
Supervise chefs and cooks
Recruit and hire new staff
Demonstrate cooking techniques to staff
I intend to compensate Mr. Achari at a rate of $34 per hour for their service. This is in line with the average wage rate for head chefs in British Columbia.
I chose Mr. Achari for this position after failing to find a suitable Canadian citizen or Canadian permanent resident to fill the position. I created a job posting with the help of Best Headhunters BC, a Surrey-based headhunting agency and advertised the position on three online job boards for four weeks between 1st July 2022 and 1st August 2022.
We received thirty-four applications from Canadian citizens and permanent residents during this period. However, none of these applicants possessed the skills and backgrounds we sought.
The Dosa Guys specialize in authentic South Indian cuisines such as Dosas and Idli Sambar from the South India region. These foods have a rich history and must be prepared using traditional techniques passed down from families in South India.
We hired Ramesh Achari after receiving his application and learning about his background and skills. Mr. Achari was born in the South Indian city of Chennai and has worked as the head chef at his family’s South Indian restaurant, Masala Delight, since 2015. Mr. Achari demonstrated in-depth knowledge of various South Indian food preparation techniques and described many innovative staff onboarding processes he implemented at Masala Delight.
I believe Mr. Achari will be a great asset who will help The Dosa Guys improve and eventually expand its operations across British Columbia. For this reason, I would humbly request your approval of Ramesh Achari’s permanent residence application.
Please contact me at (555) 555-5555 if you require any further information about me, my business, or the head chef position at The Dosa Guys.
