My first job was in an apparel manufacturing company as an Industrial engineer. I worked there for 8 months. I quit my job due to several reasons (abusive work environment, poor management, irregular salary). I wasn't given any experience certificate (according to HR, the company does not provide such things!).
I wish to pursue MS in Germany next year. After MS, I want to look for jobs there. I know it helps if you have previous work experience. When I will be looking for jobs, can I use this experience even though I don't have any certificate? Will the employer ask for any proof of my previous work?
