    traineeship

    Hello everybody

    I found that there is not a word 'traineeship' in well-known online dictionaries. Could anyone explain why?

    Now I am receiving a training with the tax office in my hometown and I'd like to write it down in my CV. Could I write:


    The Tax Office in Jerusalem
    clerk - traineeship


    Or shall I use other word such as 'training'? But I think that 'training' is ambiguous

    The Tax Office in Jerusalem
    clerk - training


    which version is better and why?


    thanks

    PS
    If I made a grammar mistake in my post (spelling, punctuation, grammar, etc), please correct it.

    There is a word "traineeship", but it is not very common. Also in some dictionaries it it is defined as financial aid that supports a training program (similar to scholarship).

    Dictionary.com lists the definition you want: Traineeship | Define Traineeship at Dictionary.com

    However, you might want use a word that is more common, such as "internship".

    Yes, internship, or study work term, or job placement are more common.

    Thank you

    internship is a US-word. To sum up I can write


    The Tax Office in Jerusalem
    clerk - job placement/work placement/trainee post



    correct?
