  2. dear frd
    It is a reference letter .. is ur employer giving u the experience certificate ... it will also include the same as it is mentioned here ..
    ask your employer to refine it more and mark some good points in it and it shud look like an official reference letter issued from the office and not the exp certificate and it shud be on letter head
    with official stamp and card of that person who is giving u the letter of reference ...
    rest lets see what other say
  3. It looks good, but I would make sure there are no abreviation such as PNL (or P&L) because the reader of the letter is morelikely not an accountant and may not understand what it says. In addition, use some of the key words from the official job description provided for 1111 to be more precise in the duties.
  4. Thank you Mohit and AD2310 for your comments. :)

    Mohit, what is the Difference between Reference letter and official Experience certificate?
    According to my manager, this is an official reference letter, showing my experience; however I may convince him to revise it...Please correct what needs to be changed in the text. You may post here or alternatively send a PM. Thank you guys!

    Other members, please comment too.
