Reference Example (its great to have references attached to your email application)
They volunteered at Panama Dive Center S.A. from the 30th of November 2015 and for 4 (four) months. As manager of the shop, we were fortunate to have him share his numerous expertise with us over the four months that he was here.
Hist cheerful nature, positive attitude, and willingness to learn and share his skills, made him not only an absolute pleasure to be around, but also an invaluable asset to our dive shop. He helped with numerous tasks, including attending clients, maintaining the shop clean, washing equipment and planning trips. His work was proactive and diligent, his relationships with clients and staff superb.
he endeared himself with all of us with his gentle nature and unfaltering character and we were all sad to see him go. We wish him all the best in all his future endeavors and would not hesitate in welcoming him back.

Another Reference Example
To whom it may concern It is my pleasure to recommend him who has been collaborating with Azul Diving Center Madeira from the 1st
of June 2016 until 2nd of September 2016. As the base leader I worked closely with him and the quality of his work as a dive guide and receptionist for our company enables me to say that he will be a precious addition to any company.

He attended his training as SSI Dive Guide and Divemaster during a three months internship.  His field of duties included assisting Divemasters and Instructors in taking care of certified divers, welcoming guests, conducting briefings and debriefings, guiding certified divers under supervision, taking care of equipment, performing equipment maintenance and filling cylinders.
His language skills were extremely valuable to us since he speaks English, Spanish like a native speaker and Italian, he has proved himself to be very enthusiastic, honest, hard working, professional and always showed a courteous and friendly attitude toward our guests and staff. He performed all the tasks required to the highest standard and took constructive criticisms very well, was always polite, willing to listen and learn and therefore it was a pleasure to work with him.

He is leaving our diving centre too soon to my liking; his performance in our company is a good indication of how well he will perform in yours. He would be an extremely positive asset to your centre and I would be happy to collaborate with him again.
I wish him all the best in future endeavours’. If I can be of any further assistance, or provide you with any further information, please do not hesitate to contact me.
