How do folks approach experience caps or ranges in job descriptions, such as "7-10 years experience" in skill XYZ? What if you have 15 years experience?
Should you say you have only 10 years when your resume clearly shows more? A role I'm applying for is specifically asking me to respond to exact "total experience in years" for particular skills and I don't know how to approach this. If I answer out of range will I get screened out and not even get a chance to interview? To me, saying 10 years when I have 15 is not a false statement since 15 includes 10, but also why should I play games around this?
Any insight or guidance is appreciated. Thanks MT.
