    present perfect with before

    Hello everyone,
    Have you worked in an office before?
    I have never tried it before? I have seen this type of sentences.
    Can we use "before" with present perfect, because before is past? or
    Did you work in an office before?
    I never tried it before.
    Thank you.

    "Have you worked in an office before?"
    "I have never tried it before?"

    Both of these are correct.
