Recommendation from contact >5 years

I’ve read so much great info here. Thank you all!

My current question is about a recommendation letter. I have a lot of contacts, but in the last 3 years, I’ve been less active due to having children. So I’m wondering if I can use a contact that is now a CTO or VP when we actually worked together back in 2012. The recommendation letter would be new, but the contact and time we worked together is greater than five years ago.

Thanks again!


Hi @geoffreyrobichaux,

Oh, the kids :slight_smile:

Yes, you can use this contact. I had pretty much the same situation.
Also, read this post for inspiration regarding who can give you a good Letter of Recommendation.
