Choosing Between Two Employers?

Choosing Between Two Employers?
« on: August 05, 2005, 11:55:18 AM »
I already have two professors lined up for my LORs but I'd like to get an employer too as a third. I don't know which one is more advisable:

1) current employer, a partner of a mid-sized law firm, that I've been with for only this summer and can attest to my legal abilities

OR

2) former employer, the president of an insurance agency, for whom I worked for nearly 3 years and knows me VERY well.

OR

Both?

I'd appreciate any suggestions!
Thank you!

The best LOR's are from those who know you the best.  The books I have read always say that the recommender should include an anecdote which attests to your best quality...if this partner can't do that, choose the other person.
