The person for whom you are submitting a reference is applying for a summer position at Star Island, Isles of Shoals, New Hampshire. Star Island is a non-profit conference center located ten miles off the coast of Portsmouth, NH, and is dedicated to religious and educational activities.
Isolated as we are, it is of the utmost importance that we select employees capable of handling their work assignments adequately, as well as having the personality and social adaptability necessary for high group morale in a staff dependent almost wholly upon their own resources for off-duty activities. Essential functions for all island jobs include the ability to act in a mature, tactful, careful and responsible way, particularly at times when a number of competing demands are being made by guests, other staff members and supervisors; and the ability to act in a manner that reflects the social adjustment required to live and work in a self-reliant isolated setting. Positions are physical in nature and requirements include but are not limited to lifting baggage and freight up to 50 pounds at a time.
With this in mind, please respond to the following questions. Please speak specifically to the applicant’s work ethic, potential to be a positive role model for peers, and sense of social and community responsibility. Your responses will be held in strict confidence.
