Greetings Reggie,

I am applying at Nintendo to become a Video Game Designer. As of my meeting with you in January, I have received my Ph.D. in computer science.

With the experience I gained while studying computer science, I have an understanding of what the real world job is like. Many of my projects simulate what it is like working with a team while designing a video game. Each time I have volunteered to lead a group, my team successfully created a game from scratch and received the highest grade. I know that I am capable of designing high selling games that will benefit the company.

Studying computer science will give me a huge lead in knowing what it means to be a video game designer. My creativity will help me in my works of designing the game that i work on. Since i was a child I have thought of many ideas that will be a big sale.

Letter Of Recomendation

To whom it may concern:

I am writing this letter of recommendation in regards to Caden at working at your fine establishment of GameStop®. Caden Clouse is a responsible, Intelligent, Comedic, and very social. He is also in his own words “Dank like a Tank”. He strives to be the very best at his profession, which will involve robotics, and I do believe that this is a very

important experience for him to get an idea of electronics

I have had the pleasure of knowing Mr. Clouse for nearly a decade, and I can say that he is very well versed in the video game industry (particularly Nintendo®) and has a very advanced understanding of retail and finances. Caden is very humourous, and is quite entertaining to be around with. Mr. Clouse can be very serious when needed to be, externally he may not look like it, but internally yes. Clouse can also be very competitive, but has nearly flawless teamwork skills, he is also understanding, respectful and charismatic.

I have no traces of doubt that Mr. Clouse will be a very successful and valuable employee under your employment. If you would like to go more in depth about Mr. Clouse, contact me at, or via phone at (911) 420-6969
