Also, I am not sure if my experience summary is sufficed for ACS skill assessment for anzsco code 261313, Software Engineer. Can you please advise. Thanks

This is very generic RNR which is practically useless

I would not apply with this letter as the chances of rejection by ACS are very high

You should get the location added and the RNR much more detailed

Cheers

There are a lot of templates here, just use the format found, if they are happy to sign this, then they should be ok to follow the required format?

As this letter is issued to me by my previous employer, when I requested them for a detailed RNR and location, they refused me by saying that they do not provide any such letters and the letter they have provided me is the best they can do.

Shall I also get a SD/Affidavit by a colleague and submit both.

The SD should preferably be made by a manager or team leader

Is the person signing the SD senior to you ?

Do you have the supporting documents required by ACS is case of a SD ?

As I already had a brief experience letter from my previous letter, they just added a "full time basis" keyword in that and replied that they cannot update the RNR for an ex-employee. This is a visa format letter they can best provide me.

It would be by a working colleague who joined on the same date as I joined, but stayed longer with the organisation than me.

I think I may not be able to get an affidavit from a Senior by designation. That's why I am thinking to manage to get it by a colleague.

Appreciate your prompt advice on all my queries. Thanks a lot.

Getting a SD from a equal rank or junior colleague is frowned upon and should be used only as a last resort when everything else has failed

Beware of that

Then SD can be added as primary evidence

Does the letter head have the India office address mentioned in it, typically below the company name or as a footnote? If yes, it is good enough in terms of location. However, I agree with the senior members of the forum that an SD with detailed roles and responsibilities from a person senior in designation to you is required, as against submitting the current letter.

Yes, I understand that. So can you suggest If I submit the reference letter from my previous employer where RNR is not very detailed and also a SD with detail RNR. Do you think two references will make a positive impact?

Also, I am getting an SD from my current supervisor whom I am reporting in my current employment.

Will SD from a colleague will work and not from a supervisor or any senior.
I have seen people submitting SDs from a colleague and getting a positive skill assessment.
Also is there a limit to submitting references for any employment.

Yeah, the address is there on the footnote. Since I have worked with various supervisors, most of them left before me and I am not finding anyone who can write me a SD.
