If you need letters of reference...
If you need letters of reference written for you, likely you're applying for some
next new "stage" in your life. College, graduate school, a job, summer internship, etc.
Often, you're applying for more than one endeavor, and what you'll find is each
has its own deadline, letter-submission method, custom forms, and the like. Compiling and keeping track
of all of this information is difficult. This is where Letterable.com can help.
As you research each application's requirements, you can type it directly into
your Letterable account (you can create one here
). Letterable will help you to
compile a single, organized, view of all of your letter needs.
What about your letter writers? You're likely sending in several
applications, but so are the 5-10 other students who also need letters.
It is equally difficult for a single letter-writer to keep track of
dozens of letter requests. Again, this is where Letterable can help.
Letterable creates "share links" that are directly linked to your (now
organized) letter needs. Simply emailing your letter writers a link
will allow them to see what you need as well. This includes all
deadlines and submission requirements.

professor, you can have 5-10 students approach you for these letters. It's
not uncommon to be responsible for between 50 and 100 letters in a
Letterable can help you get rid of yellow sticky notes,
reminders, and unorganized (and often incomplete) requests from the
applicant themselves. The organization Letterable forces upon the
applicant is passed directly to you. Letterable will keep track of
deadlines, submission methods, addresses, and letterheads. It'll even
generate a PDF copy of the letter you write!
So, as a letter-writer do nothing now...simply tell the applicant who
asked you for a letter: "Sure, send me a letterable
