A letter of verification is a letter that is usually used to verify an employee’s employment. They are commonly used when applying for a bank loan or trying a rent an apartment. They are informal, simple, and straight to the point. They usually include the duration of time the employee has been employed in their current position.
Tips for writing a letter of verification
- Be specific: state that you actually employ the said person, what the nature of their position is, and how long they have been working for you
