    Working experience or work experience?

    Hi All,

    Do you think "working experience" should rewrite to "work experience" in the following sentence?

    At least 10 years’ related working experience, including a minimum of 6 years’ assessment
    experience at managerial level

    Re: Working experience or work experience?

    I'd leave it as is.

    In the UK at least, work experience is what final-year high school students do to accustom them to the world of employment. It's unpaid and limited to a few weeks.

    In your sentence, you might change 'working' to 'employment'.
