How many years job experience would make you feel "good enough" to be an expert?
Hi. I just wonder some people would feel "good enough" to do your job in order to be called as a professional only with a couple of years, on the other hand, some would say their profession needs more than ten years experience to be called the same. How many years at least do you need to have to be called as expert on your job? Is it enough to have only a couple of years? An assistant in various industries, should they be called an expert as well?
