Hi adminstrator ! If I want to say a worker who already has experience in a field for 5 years. Which noun phrase could I use here?

- A worker with five years of experience.

- A worker having five years' experience.

- A 5-year-experience worker.

Thank you very much.

Hi, Moon Le—Just so you know, none of the three things you have punctuated as a sentence is a sentence. They are noun phrases. The first two are correct, and the third is incorrect. You can say "a worker with five years of experience" or "a worker having five years' experience"—both of which phrases are equivalent in meaning—but you cannot say "a 5-year-experience worker."
