    Had/Has - In context with Experience Letter

    Hi All,

    I have a doubt to clarify. Recently, I came across to one of the company's experience letter where the content was as below -

    This is to certify that Mr. A had worked with XYZ company since --- to ---.

    My doubt is with the selection of word -had.

    The reason I feel so because when I looked closely at the letter, it had the date when that letter was typed. The letter was issued to the employee on his last working day - 4th April'16 and the letter had this date on top of it.

    For me, the content should have been - This is to certify that Mr. A has worked with XYZ company since --- to ---.

    Though, there're many other ways to write this content; however, I was concern with the usage of has and had.

    Please suggest.

    Thanks,

    Ravish

    Re: Had/Has - In context with Experience Letter

    The correct way to say it in the context that you have given is: "Mr A worked for XYZ company from 01 to 02".
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”
