I have got letter of experience from my previous employer on company's letter head, but it doesn't have a company stamp or seal upon it. Would it be considered as a valid experience letter? Or is getting it stamped mandatory?

  • Does the letter have a signature?

    Can you please add a tag for whatever country this is in? Many places (the US, for example) don't even have this concept. Dec 10, 2015 at 11:59

It would be good and feel authentic if the letter is stamped.However, I don't think it is mandatory.

Plus, it varies depending on company / geography. In India, (where I work out of)as far as I know, it is required to have the experience letter printed out with a proper letterhead bearing the employer's logo and seal, signed by an authorized HR Officer.

I checked this with a HR guy I know and he tells it is not obligatory for a company to stamp the letter(We are a MNC). I guess you are fine, provided the letter carries an authorized signature.

    Plus, the company you are applying to will mostly verify on background checks. That will do. Mar 2, 2020 at 3:30
