How to Write an Experience Certificate


An experience certificate is a letter of reference written on the behalf of a designated employee that confirms the time he spent at a specific company and attests to his skills, intelligence and work habits. It's an important letter to have when searching for a new job. While a letter of reference can be an entire page or longer, an experience certificate is usually one concise paragraph.

Things You'll Need

  • Printer
  • Company letterhead
  • Type the date in the top right corner. Skip a line. Type the salutation "To Whom It May Concern" on the top left side of the paper, underneath the date. A nonspecific salutation allows the person named in the certificate to reuse the document multiple times when applying for various jobs.

  • Explain that you are writing on behalf of a particular person and state that person's full name. Describe in what capacity the person worked for you and give her exact job title. State the given amount of time she worked for you and give the exact dates of employment.

  • Describe the character and work habits of the person named in the certificate. Be positive and specific based on your knowledge of this person in the workplace. Choose words and phrases that will be memorable. Use a thesaurus, if necessary.

  • Write a closing sentence that sums up your opinions and thoughts about the certificate subject. Good closing sentences are: "I wish him every success in life" or "He would be an enormous asset to any company" or "He'll be successful at any endeavor he embarks upon."

  • Close your certificate with "Regards" or "Sincerely," and type your name underneath. Type your title directly underneath your name.

  • Print the letter on company letterhead and sign it.
