Expert or intermediate,,, How do I determine? More resume questions

Okay did the resume. Thanks to everyone on CM for helping get me started.
Now I'm trying to post it and I'm being asked if my retail sales & management skill are beginner, intermediate or expert. I haven't worked in 7 years so my skills are null and void but I'm sure that once I see a register again I'll pick it back up quickly. When I was working I was great and was able to help other people from other locations with their problems. I don't want to over state my abilities but also shouldn't down play what I was able to do. So how do I answer?? Thanks

  • intermediate is probably the best answer given the seven years.

  • I'd probably go with intermediate. Expert could make you look really bad if you get in there and have questions that they think an "expert" shouldn't ask, and beginner would downplay the fact that you do have some skills, though they are a bit rusty.

  • I'm thinking intermediate so as I can get in the door and learn their system since it's been a while. I won't have as many expectations like if I say expert.

  • I think I would go with intermediate too.

  • I would go with intermediate, since you do have basic, if rusty, skills. Good luck!
