I came across this mail(abridged version) on the Images section of Google search, which was sent by the management of an unnamed company in Bay Area to an individual who had submitted his/her Resume in response to a job advertisement:

Your current qualifications do not match those needed for our current openings

Is the word qualifications in this context referring only to educational qualifications or does it include work experience as well?

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

  • Did you look up qualifications in a dictionary? – choster Oct 1 '15 at 2:54

Unless you are a first-time job seeker, one of the most important qualifications a potential employer has in mind is a "related" job experience.

Qualification, as defined in Merriam-Webster, it definitely includes "a type of experience" that makes someone suitable to do a particular job or activity.
