Letter of Experience

There are two common types of letter of experience. The first is a document certifying an individual’s previous work experience with a current or past employer. Letters of experience are valuable when applying for a new job, or for post secondary education. They detail the time that you worked for the employer, along with the tasks and skills you demonstrated on a daily basis. When writing a letter of experience in this scenario, it is important to include official job titles and any positive anecdotes that demonstrate the employees skills and qualities.


The second kind of letter is issued to you by a former car insurance company when you are purchasing insurance from a new provider. It details your insurance history, such as previous policy dates, any claims made, accidents recorded, police charges filed, or cancellations. The letter is used by your new provider to confirm details in your application are correct and to help calculate your premium.

Dear whom it may concern,

I hereby verify that  Michelle  P.  Rivera  has been working in our organization from the period of July 12th, 2004 to November 18th, 2009. While employed with Hansen Ice Cream, her responsibilities have included interacting with our clients and providing them with information on the steel products we distribute. She has done a fantastic job completing these tasks, and she has always been on time and professional during his tenure here.


She left us on November 18th, 2009 to pursue further education, and is now back looking for a job. We would rehire her, but she is looking for something different than what we can offer.


I strongly recommend  Michelle  P.  Rivera  for a similar position at your company.
