How to obtain a detailed Infosys Experience Letter?
As a courtesy, Infosys has started giving detailed experience letters which is necessary for I-140 Immigration petition\PERM application in USA. The process is extremely simple. I got my experience letter within 2 weeks. If you are still in contact with your managers from Infosys Days, it would be easier. Following is a detailed step by step guide to get your experience letter.
Step 02: Within a couple of days, you will get a response along with 2 attachments for you to fill out. If you do not hear back, you can always follow up.
The First document is a format in which Infosys gives the experience letter. You would have to list all your job duties and Tools for which you are requesting the experience letter. Sample below:
The second document has 2 sections. The first section is for your current employer to fill out. It requires them to confirm that they require the experience letter for the GC processing. A sample snapshot of the document looks like this:
The second section if for you to list down your managers during Infosys Tenure. Your managers will have to validate your job duties and tools used. I listed 5 managers from my Tenure and the request for validation was sent to 2 of them. You can use approximate start and end dates as it would be difficult for anyone to remember these for all their projects.
Step 03: After filling out the 2 documents in step 02 to the best of your knowledge, reply to the email from US_EmpVerification@Infosys.com with attachments. Within a couple of days, you will get an email saying it has been sent to your managers for validation. This email will have the email address of the managers to whom it has been sent for validation.
Step 04: Once it is approved, you will receive the employment verification letter in your inbox. If not, Send an email to your managers saying that you have asked for a detailed experience letter and they would have to approve it. I also listed down the duties for which I was seeking their approval and listed them down by projects. This is not something one should do, but I did.
Step 05: You will get the experience letter within a day of the managers approving it. In my case, it took about 10 minutes between the managers approving and me receiving the letter in my inbox.
Step 06: If none of your managers or superiors are still with Infosys – find any friend\HR who is in Level 06 and above at Infosys. Send a detailed email with your Employee Number(this is very very important) and details of the projects you worked along with dates. Get a confirmation beforehand that they will be willing to do this favor for you. When you send an email to US_EmpVerification@Infosys.com , add these details about this. Clearly specify that nobody in your hierarchy is present but XYZ@Infosys.com is willing to approve. Ask them to suggest an alternate approver if they are not happy with the person you have specified.
Points to Note:
- I do not know Infosys Internal SLAs. I can only guesstimate based on my experience.
- Infosys gives the experience letter as a courtesy and reserves the right to deny it.
