Are my prepositions correctly used in these 2 examples:
1. The required experience of this job is at least 5 years.
2. No applicants had the necessary experience for the job.
Since the contexts are different, so are the relations of the experiences to the nouns following them.
Are the prepositions correct?
So experience for is s pre-requisite (it's something you have to have, in order to meet some requirement).
Experience [U][of/U] refers to something you have actually done. Other prepositions are also possible -for example 'experience in stressful positions', or 'experience under stress'.
Do you accept both of them?
1. experience for classroom teaching
2. experience of classroom teaching
I really don't know which one is correct because I have heard of both of them quite often.
'for' and 'of' sometimes can be interchangeable, that's why it is difficult for me.
How about 'the experience requirement of the job'?
Is 'of' used correctly?
The potential employer might have said 'You need four years' experience for this job. The 'of' relates to the nature of the experience, and the 'for' relates to the job. They may both be relevant and used in a situation, but they are not interchangeable.
