An ideal combination of LORs would be both from professors you have worked under or interacted with closely as well as employers. It is not necessary that your LOR has to come from the head of the department. It could be any professor in your department who can vouch for your capabilities. As far as your employer goes, the higher the position it comes from the better it looks in your application. It is also extremely positive if your LOR comes from someone who has already pursued an education from the US and has a degree from a university there.

The LOR must also cite examples of the skills it claims you have rather than a generic letter. Avoid getting a template for your LOR.

So, if you are a student, you might consider getting 2 LORs from professors at college and one from your employer.
