About experience or experiences and knowledge(s). Uncountable or countable?


How to decide use countable or uncountable form of word experience?

Also I have required background knowledge and experience(s) for this position.

I think if you use "knowledge" (uncountable) in the same sentence, keep the same pattern and use "experience" -- uncountable.

Also, it is advised to use the same form[s] as the prospective employer used in the job advertisement. If they say "experience required: ...", you do the same. If they use the word "skills", give them "skills" back. And so on.
