  10. Thank you luvcanada it is indeed a good help , can you please provide us the sample Employment Contract (Appointment Letter).

  11. If the company has ceased to exist, then you will have to back up your "Experience" from that company with other docs like paystubs, tax docs,appreciation letters or any docs that would precisely indicate that you have performed the Job. Of course, you will also have to write a cover letter with the explanation as to why you are unable to provide reference from the Company itself.

  12. Can you also provide a sample of explanation letter? Thanks
