    I had someone send me a letter of rec electronically, but it is not signed.
    I am completing applitrack applications in which I attach the letter electronically. Is it okay if the letter I put is not signed? Her contact info is on the letter so they can, and probably will, contact her anyway.

    Are you in contact with this person face-to-face ever or would it be possible to stop by? If so, I'd stop by with the letter and politely ask them to sign it just to be safe. Then you can scan it to yourself for an electronic copy.

    If you can get the letter signed, I definitely would.

    A signature would hold more weight than an unsigned letter of recommendation.

    I signed one and scanned it back to my friend via email.

    This happened to me last year. I asked, is there anyway that you could send me a signed copy? This person was tech-savvy, and said it was not a problem. If not, I would have asked them to just fax it to me. I could always scan it myself. Or if even that is difficult, you could always use snail mail.
