Mr. Dick. Does the recommendation of the university play an important role?
Yes. In fact, the recommendation letter written by the university is an indirect self recommendation.
In the long period of cooperation, the university has established good relationship with the companies or organizations, they trust each other well.
If your university recommends you, you can be approved more easily. But I find that most of the recommendation letters written by universities are the same.
So I doubt its authority. More and more persons have the same discoveries since most universities do that in order to save energy.
If your university also does like this, you can look for other methods, because such kinds of recommendations say nothing for you. Could you tell me whether or not I send out my resume with it?
It depends. If it has something special or useful, I suggest you send it out.
