A work experience letter is a very important document that is given by the employer to his employee, when the latter is relieved from his job. The work experience letter helps future, prospective employers learn about the abilities of the applicant and verify the work related details in the resume or curriculum vitae provided.

A work experience letter is meant to be written briefly and cover all the information regarding the length of employment, job description, responsibilities handled, etc. An experience letter is generally addressed 'To Whom It May Concern', as the former employee may take the letter and submit it with different job applications. The employer need not go into the details of the former employees professional and personal qualities.

At times one needs to write work experience letter for themselves when applying for a job or trying for a seat in an academic course. In such a case, you need to write about yourself, age, education background. In the next paragraph, talk about your work experience. Where and when did you work, how long did you work in a particular organization, the position you held there and other details should be given in this paragraph. The closing paragraph should contain your thanks and hope that you are considered for the job or given the seat. The letter should be short and to the point. As far as possible, do not send a hand-written letter and print on A-4 size paper. Double check for grammatical mistakes, typos and formatting.

In this Workspirited article, we shall focus on letters written by an employer to his current or former employee. The following experience letter samples will serve as a guide for you, that follow the rules of professional letter writing.

Sample Experience Letter ~ # 1

To Whom it May Concern:

This letter is my personal recommendation for Irene MaCarthy. I have been Irene's immediate supervisor for the past several years. I found her to be consistently pleasant, tackling all assignments with dedication and a smile.

Besides being a team player, Irene is a take-charge person, who is able to present creative ideas and communicate the benefits. She has successfully developed several marketing plans for our company that have resulted in increased revenue. The new revenue was a direct result of the plans implemented by Irene.

Though she was an asset to our marketing efforts, Irene was also extraordinarily helpful in other areas of the company. In addition to writing effective training modules for sales representatives, Irene assumed a leadership role in sales meetings, inspiring and motivating other employees.

I highly recommend Irene for employment. She is a joy to work with and would make a great asset to any organization.
