A work experience letter is a document that is given by the employer to her/his employee, when the latter is relieved from his job. The work experience letter helps possible future employers learn about the qualifications and abilities of the applicant and verify the work related details in the resume or CV provided.
A work experience letter has to be written briefly and cover all the information regarding the length of employment, simple job description, responsibilities handled, etc. As the former employee may take the letter and submit it with different job applications, an experience letter is generally addressed “To Whom It May Concern“. The employer need not go into the details of the former employees professional and personal qualities.
Work experience letter writing tips:
- Be brief and answer clearly what are his/her education credentials and set of skills, qualities that qualify her/him for the job.
- Letter should be typed.
- Proof-Read to clean of any grammatical or spelling errors.
