  1. Hello, quick question – If I have a reference letter from 2 companies with exactly similar Duties / Responsibilities – is that okay? The other job information such as title, wage and everythign else is different but duties are exactly the same and I have got reference letter for the same. Please advise.

  2. Thank you mark it is really going to help me. I never thought about them,
    my job offer (mail) mentions my key roles and responsibility's
    Exit letter show duration i worked, my pay, job tile & designation.

    wohoooooo… i was worried coz my employer denied to give me the letter.

  3. can i take it on mail, the responsibilities are not mentioned on exit letter and i don't even have offer mail for the same. In that case can i ask my boss to send me the mail specifying the job responsibilities from his official mail ID. and attach that mail instead of any letter.

  8. Hi I have got the appointment letter, relieving letter and salary slip. The hr says that all the points required are already mentioned in the appointment letter and relieving letter so they cannot issue any further letters. All the required details are mentioned in my appointment and relieving letter. Only working hours not mentioned. If the hr writes a mail stating the working hours and rest details mentioned in other letters will that do? Mail response if attached along with appointment letter, relieving letter and salary slip will do? As my company will not issue any further letters. Kindly help what is the best possible option in this case?
