That’s a great question! I agree with Amber, most larger companies aren't requiring applicants to attach a letter of recommendation when they apply. With that being said, I think it's always a good idea to have a few letters of recommendation on hand, because a company may ask for them. For the number of letters, I personally think that the quality is more important than the quantity you have, be sure you are asking the right people who know you the best to write your letters.
