3. How much experience do you have? How many years of experience do you have?

It depends on how you like to count:

  • I have been a Microsoft Certified Professional Developer and Technology Specialist since 2008.
  • I have been working on business critical software since 2010.
But ultimately, the number of years of experience is probably not as important as the quality of those years. I am grateful for having both the quantity and the quality. Among other positions, I have worked for a Europe leading E-Commerce company, the biggest Banking Group in the European Economic Area, the Leading British Bank in the exceptional credit market, the biggest independent insurance broker in the UK, the General Electric global corporation and a few tech start-ups that you probably never heard of.
