How do I write an experience certificate?
An experience certificate is a written document that certifies that its owner, i.e. employee, worked for a ministry, institution, or company, whether in the public or private sector. In that, he gained practical and scientific experience with this institution, and many foundations and rules must be adhered to when writing it, and this is what we will mention in this article.
How to write an experience certificate
When writing an experience certificate, you must pay attention to two important things: the sufficient information that must be provided in the certificate, and the general form of the certificate. In writing this certificate, several basics must be taken into account, including:
All personal information related to the employee, such as his full name, date of birth, place of birth, and other personal details, must be written to avoid manipulation, forgery, or similarity of names, and therefore these details serve as a guarantee that the holder of this certificate is actually its holder and not someone else.
Years of work
The number of years of work the employee has spent in this institution must be mentioned, even if it is a short period, so the duration of the period in which his work was proven, and the date on which he finished his work must be mentioned.
The job title in which the employee was working within the institution, his job grade, and the positions he held, must be mentioned, along with the length of his stay in each position.
It must be mentioned in some detail about the job title in which the employee was working, and whether his position was leadership, supervisory, or administrative.
The certificate must be arranged and clear so that others can read it, so some things must be taken into account when writing it, including:
- Header: The certificate must be tagged with the name of the institution, as well as with its address, logo, phone number, e-mail, and mailbox, so that others can easily access it.
- Signature and authentication: The certificate must be issued by the person qualified to issue this certificate, signed by his signature, and stamped with the seal of the institution.
- Certificate title: It must be written in the name of an experience certificate, or directed by the phrase (To Whom It May Concern).
