Anyone have a good template for an employment reference?

Hi All -

I'm an American applying for jobs in Switzerland. Reference(s) from my most recent jobs have been requested, however I don't have any since it's not as common to get them here in the US. My old boss is happy to write me one, and asked that I send him either a template or an outline of things to be included so that he hits on all the important points. I'm assuming something in line with the Swiss Zeugnis would be best as this is what Swiss employers are used to... Does anyone have a template or recommendations on what I should be asking of my former employers to write for me that will make me look good to a Swiss hiring agent?

Also, if anyone has any other tips on differences between applying for jobs in CH vs. US that might make me look like a better/more prepared candidate, I'm all ears!

Thanks in advance!

Danielle

Thanks! I saw this... and will likely send him this outline, however something like a sample or a template would actually be more useful
