The term “journey level experience” refers to a skilled someone with more experience in her trade than a trainee, but who is not yet fully licenced. In certain occupations, there are restrictions on the work a person can perform.
A person with experience at the journey level is also known as a journeyman. Although the name indicates that the individual has less experience than a master, a journeyman is skilled in his or her trade and deemed experienced enough to operate largely autonomously. The Middle English word originates from the French word journée, which means “day.”
