How to attach a letter of recommendation to job application?
I'm 17 and applying to retail stores. Do I just put the letter of recommendation (from my volunteer work supervisor) in with the application and mail it? Also, can I include a letter of recommendation from a teacher at school, or is that not normally done? Thanks Also, there are some places that I've already sent in the application. Is it weird to send in letters too after the applications have already been sent in? How do I do this? Thanks so much!!! 10 pts to best answer

Sending copies of your letters of recommendation with the applications is a very good idea. Write a short letter telling the companies you sent your applications to that you are also mailing them copies of your letters of recommendation to attach to your application.

You don't usually send letters of recommendation until you're asked for them. They only use those in the final selection process, if at all for jobs at your level.

send a copy not the original, at the end of your covering letter say something like 'please see attached letter of recommendation, or if you are mentioning referees, say 'see attached'.
