Experience letters can make a huge difference in an individual’s work prospects. An employee leaving an organization should ask for an experience letter in order to ensure that his experience is portrayed appropriately in front of prospective employers.

Most of companies do not provide ex-employees with experience certificates unless asked for. So it is important to point out here just how to ask for one. It is a good idea to put a request on paper so that the HR department as a record for it. Here is how you will ask for the issuance of an experience certificate.

Dear Ms. Davidson:

As you are aware, I am leaving Creative Solutions by the end of this month. It has been quite an amazing journey and I do not think that I will ever find an employer who can teach me – as much as I learnt here – or work with better peers.

I will be leaving Orange Beach in the middle of October and I will need some time to settle in Gadsden before joining of my new job. I already collected all relevant documents except my experience certificate which I had overlooked when applied for my release documents. I would appreciate it if you process this as soon as possible so that I can get all my documents ready before my departure.

I spent an extremely productive time at Creative Solutions and will miss it greatly. I hope to be able to work with you again soon and look forward to a continued alliance in the future.

Thank you very much for your continuous support during my tenure at your office.
