nope it is not letter of recommondation!
letter of recommondation is given when you recommond somebody for a new job. this is about your old job and normally does not an introduction/recommondation for a new job.
these are letters normally company issue when somebody leave the company, with the a discription on what he/she has done, achive and shown during his/her stay.
anyway, i managed to collect few letters from some friends who left their companies recently. therefore my need is satisfied for the moment. however let's keep this question for a while to see whether somebody can actually comeup with a good letter format and grab points
thank you anyway.

This is to certify that Mr. MH was employed by ABC from 02.01.2001 till 01.03.06. ABC has almost 350 employees .During his final year Mr MH was a Project Manager of the Software Development Section, which has 60 employees.Mr. MH is a responsible, hard working and honest person. The management was highly pleased and satisfied with his performance.
Mr. MH joined us as a Junior Software Engineer in January 2001 and his duties included development using Microsoft Technologies such as Visual Basic 6.0, ASP (Active Server Pages), XML and Microsoft SQL Server. He  also took part in designing and documenting the project with UML (Rational Rose 2000).
It is our company policy that we have a 6 month probation period for new hirings but on the basis of his performance and good technical skills, his employment was confirmed within 3 months.
In September 2001, Mr MH worked in a team to develop a paperless virtual back office system for the UK based company; APL Pvt. Ltd. In January 2002, he was promoted to Software Engineer and his new responsibilites were: preparing the Detail Design Specification document, communicating design with other developers, participating in development by Microsoft SQL Server 2000, VB 6.0, XML, ASP and UML, project documentation and client meetings.
In August 2002, we won another UK contract to develop the accounting, payroll and financial systems for GGP PLC. We held an in-house competition (is that really the right word?)to choose the team to work on the account. Mr. MH was among top three employees in that competition so he was put in the team as Senior Software Engineer. Now his responsibilities were: correspondence with our UK clients, understanding their requirements, preparing the documents, designing the system, getting approval from the client and developing it. He used ASP and SQL Server 2000.
In 2003, Mr MH was promoted to Team Leader for a major software project that involved computerisation of land records in Pakistan. His responsibilities were: meeting with clients to prepare the specification document, functional specification, project plan, maintaining schedules for rest of the team members, designing the architecture of the applications and managing the whole team..
In October 2004,we participated in GITEX in Dubai, and we selected Mr MH to represent us there.
In November 2004 we started developing a product named UREMIS and keeping in view the leadership, motivating, analytical and designing capabilities of Mr. MH, he was appointed its Project Manager. He was responsible for the recruitment of the team, monitoring day to day functions of the project, defining standards and processes, supervising and guiding the project team, monitoring and evaluating the progress. He was actively involved in the day to day administration of the activities, appraisal of staff performance, coordinating and managing the overall performance of the staff. He was then involved in presenting the product to prospective clients and won several accounts for us.
Since he has been employed by us, MR MH has shown an excellent attitude to his work, has been a popular member of our team, and contributed to our success. By implementing a continuous improvement strategy he has  made his department an example for the other departments. He has proved a good trainer and mentor for his staff. He has redesigned and reengineered the software development infrastructure and procedures to meet the intense and ever increasing demand of latest technologies of Information technology.
Due to his skills, commitment and continued hard work, we wish him success in his ambitions.
