An experience certificate is similar to a letter of reference. This simple document issued by an employer covers details about your employment, such as your job function and the length of time that you worked. You might need an experience certificate when applying for a new job, an academic program or certain certifications requiring work experience. You can apply for an experience certificate by writing a basic letter to your employer.
Ask your current or former supervisor whom to contact for an experience certificate. She might be able to provide one for you, or there might be a specific person such as a human resources manager, who issues these documents.
Write a letter to the person responsible for issuing an experience certificate. Include identifying information in the letter, such as your name and your employee number. Clearly state that you are requesting an experience letter. State the dates that you worked and mention key projects that you worked on. This will help the writer to include relevant information about your experience. Explain why you need an experience certificate, and include any details that can help the writer to make the certificate specific. Provide the date that you will need the certificate by.
Mail the letter to the person responsible. If you need to make a tight deadline, it is acceptable to send the letter by email. Include the same details in your letter, and apologize for the rush.
Call the recipient after a week simply to confirm that he received your letter and to politely inquire when you can expect to receive the certificate.
