What is the right format for an experience letter?

I need to write a letter that will outline my experience in the retail field for a cover letter.

Experience letters, commonly known as Certificates of Employment, may be written formally or semi-formally. The letter must be brief, yet concise. It must consist of essential details pertaining to the employee's employment history in the company, such as the period of employment and position or designation. Some would necessitate a short description of the employee's work performance.

You are looking for part of a resume. There are many templates available in both the word processing programs, and through google. Simply make sure that it looks professional (take a look at some examples first) and includes your name, phone number, email, and address at the top. Then, in outline format list your qualifications.

The right format depends on the specific job you are applying for. A basic format that usually works is to briefly introduce yourself, and then discuss your experience as it relates to the specific job. Do not discuss all your experience - just highlight 2 or 3 things that relate.

List at the top the experience you have that is most relevant to the job for which you are applying. It does not matter if this experience is the most recent, only that it strengthens the case as to why you are the best job candidate. The second job should be the next closest experience.

The standard format is three paragraphs. First, introduce yourself and explain why you're writing. Second, summarize why you're interested and why they should hire you. Third, cordially close the letter.
