Think of the example of a farmer. He works IN a field WITH a plough.

Most areas of work are likewise referred lớn as "fields". So when you are speaking about your "field" of work, you would say you have experience in it.

However, both can be very useful when writing a CV/resume or a job application. For example, let"s say that you were applying for a job in the field of ICT and you wanted to demonstrate your experience. If you had already worked in that field or similar, you would want to detail that. But maybe you have sầu worked in an unrelated field (say, general administration) & that role contained an element of ICT that gave sầu you relevant experience. You couldn"t legitimately clayên ổn you had worked in ICT but you could show that you have some transferrable skills by detailing the things you worked with.

For example:

I have sầu 3 years" experience working in an ICT technical role.


I have sầu 3 year"s experience working with computers.

In my opinion, in could be used when you are referring lớn a topic or a field of study, e.g. "experience in web design, experience in robotics". và with sounds more natural for me if used with a tool or concrete technology, e.g. "Experience with CCS, javascript, Experience with sensors".

Summarizing, I think in could be used when the experience was gained by being exposed or being involved in a field, while with could be used for experience gained by using something.

Experience in software development.

(ie the field you have experience in)

Experience with Java, Spring & Netbeans.

(ie the specific tools, products, etc that you"ve sầu used while gaining that experience)

There is a fairly clear distinction in most cases. But that said, the distinction is also subtle enough that it is likely to lớn go unnoticed if you get it wrong.
