How to Write an Application Requesting the Issuance of an Experience Letter:

An experience letter is a kind of formal letter issued by an employer to their employee to acknowledge their working duration at the company.

You can ask for an experience letter from a company that you have worked for. Some companies do not have a policy of issuing unsolicited experience letters. These kinds of companies will only issue one if someone has asked for it. Experience letter, also known as ‘certificate of employment’ certifies that you have worked for a certain company for a certain time period. It also mentions your position and job responsibilities.

Respected Sir/Madam,

With all due respect, I am stating that I, Ross Dickens have worked in your esteemed organization for the past three years as a speech therapist. It was a truly wonderful experience. The work environment of this company is definitely unmatchable and the time that I spent here made me utilize my talent in the best way possible. I learned a lot during my journey here. 

I am here to state that I applied for a job in Canada a few months ago. Fortunately, I have got it after going through a series of tests, assessments, and interviews. I solely got the job because of what I learned in this organization which helped me clear my interviews with flying colors.

I have to request you to please issue an experience letter to me which will specify the years that I worked here and my designation. I am required to have this certificate in my possession before I take up my new job. Furthermore having such a letter is important for my future as well. Please issue an experience letter as soon as possible.

Thanking you.
Yours Sincerely,
Ross Dickens,
