There are three important factors to consider when you’re choosing a recommender-
How long you have known them
Ideally, your recommender is someone who should know you for at least a year.
Because this amount of time is enough for any teacher or manager to completely understand and talk about your personality.
What they have worked on with you
The university will be looking for a recommender to talk about your academic and professional behaviour. So the fact that your recommender actually guided your work on a project or a research paper would mean that the recommendation isn’t just being given by a bystander; it’s from a person who has seen you in action. And that matters.
Although this should not be a high priority (unless you’re applying for a research program), a letter from a highly qualified recommender with a Ph.D., or a manager at a higher position, will speak volumes about your networking and intellectual skills.
As long as you keep these factors in mind while shortlisting your recommender, you should be able to find the right mentor with ease.
