My first query is whether we need to address the experience letter to the ACS team or we can have "To whomsoever it may concern".

I understand we need to mentioned the following:
Name of the employee
Name of the Company
Location of the company
Number of hours per week
Salary if possible
the duration of the employment

followed by the roles and responsibilities.


Sample:
TO WHOMSOEVER IT MAY CONCERN

This is to certify that Mr. XXX (ID: XXX) was employed with XXX, India as XXX on a full time basis of 40 hours per week from December 2007 till December 2008.

He/she possesses good expertise on the domain like XXX and is competent in XXX/XXX capabilities with professional, educational and behavioral competencies.

In this position, Mr. XXXX roles, responsibilities and duties were as follows:


please let me know your comments on the same.

Just make sure that the name, designation and contact details of the person signing the Reference letter is given.
Also that the letter is issued on the company letterhead which gives the addresses and contact details of the company
It need not be addressed to ACS, To whom it may concern is good enough

cheers

Hey Newbienz,
I am getting this on the Company Letter head but it would contain the signature of the person who is giving the letter.. along with his or her designation.... the company letter head would contain the contact details or the board number but not specific contact number of the person.

Do i need to ask for the signing person contact number to be mentioned??

Thanks

Hi Guys, but i think if u get employer reference letter on official letterhead which is kind of system generated for most of the mnc's having company borad and fax number , it can not be modified to put personal number of the person signing it which is kind of default HR head .
Anyway if acs want they can ask for that person by calling on board number.
Plz suggest if at all its mandatory.

Secondly...earlier too i asked this qstn regarding mention of location where employment was completed.companies like ibm cts etc dun mention location in their letter...is it really mandatory..i read it on acs guidelines that it is needed...but somebody on forum had replied it is needed when u worked in multiple location otherwise not required.plz help me here???

Thirdly...lets say i have 8 years of experience and i possess comp sci degree
Now the first two years will be deducted for suitablity criteria...qstn is do i really need to give employer ref letter for this to acs...or no.need...ultimately i wont gent any points for these 2 years...or it is needed to be submitted no matter if it will be deducted and become non relevant exp

Replies are much appreciated...as i m plnng to go for acs so wanted the info on people's exp here..??
Thanks a lot.

Hi ..i agree with on the fact that the board number is present on the company letter head .. what newbiez said is good to have if we can get to print their phone number.. which many a times is not possible as the companies have digital signatures of the HR head where you might not get any other information alternative to this what we can do is attach a business card scan to the same document i guess..

the location generally is mentioned in the first two lines which generally says "xyz was employed at abc pvt ltd in bangalore india as 123 on full time basis of 40 hours per week from date till date"


3 rd question i think i will let the experienced speak about it .. cause it is a combination of ICT Units and Duties ..


Thanks and all the best ... by the way which code you are applying ???

3. You have to give the complete set of papers for the initial 2 years also irrespective of whether ACS will ultimately allow it or not.

If you dont, they may deduct the next 2 years also for which you have given the complete papers and just ignore the initial 2 years

Please dont try to prejudge the ACS assessment and submit all the documents as per ACS guidelines

Cheers

Please make sure that the name, designation and contact details of the person signing the reference letter is given

Hi .. i think you should submit what you got and it would have the details on the letter about location and phone numbers etc ... its good to have it mentioned but i guess not mandatory... at the same time companies are getting such request in large numbers and they are accommodating at times and some have started to accommodate..

i think we need the following for ACS:

1.Passport only the details page attested
2.Transcripts from university attested
3.main degree certificate attested ( some say color copy works but i think i would go for attestation personal choice)
4.Current company offer letter and the experience letter (extra could be a business card and/or 3 months payslips(attested))
5.Previous companies relieving letter along with experience letter on letter head (some suggest the experience letter should be attested need to get confirmation on the same)with business card and pay slips (Attested) if possible
6.if any Statutory declaration with manager that should be a stamp paper of some value you should find that information from the forum members along with these
•Certified copy of Payslips – preferably first & last payslip
•Certified copy of Human Resource statement or Service Certificate
•Certified copy of Termination Letter with corresponding dates

Please Note: the ACS is unable to accept letters of appointment, self-statutory declarations or contracts as employment references.

Senior or experience members can pitch and comments on anything that needs correction.. thanks in advance for all your support
All the best .. and lets do it quick
