    Default If stament

    if(experience <= num3) {
    System.out.println("You are a JAVA developer");
    if(num3 > experience <= num2) {
    System.out.println("You are a JAVA Senior");
    if(num1 > experience <= num1) {
    System.out.println("You are a JAVA Analyst");
    }else{
    System.out.println("You are a JAVA Consultant");

    The compiler wants binary operators like <, <=, > etc to have an operand on each side. Your expression violates the rules.
    Try putting a pair of () around each subexpression: (operand operator operand). For example:
    (a > b) && (a < d)
    Each subexpression evaluates to a boolean value: (A > 1) is true or false. The subexpressions must be connected with a boolean operator like AND, NOT and OR to make another boolean expression.
    if statements require a boolean expression inside of the ()s
    if(boolean expression) ....

    Java must have a bracket at both ends of the if statement. IE if (a > b)&&(a<b) {"Value";}

    just stating as you have 4 open brackets and only 1 closing bracket
    for every open there must be a close.


    Credit to norm for the expression.

    The ifs could be nested:

    if(experience <= num3) {
       System.out.println("You are a JAVA developer");
       if(num3 > experience <= num2) {
          System.out.println("You are a JAVA Senior");
          if(num1 > experience <= num1) {
             System.out.println("You are a JAVA Analyst");
          }else{
             System.out.println("You are a JAVA Consultant");
          }  // These three } were missing in the original
       }
    }

    that is a good point. but still need the three }s or u will get errors. SO that goes down to do u want to say you are all of the above you qwualify or just the highest. and this is just a logic on my part i might not be understanding the code but you might be with the
     if(num1 > experience <= num1)
    why dont you just place it so experience is equal to num1
     if (num1 == experience)
    or is that a error becuase your saying if num1 is less than experience and experience is greater than or equal to num1 (logical error) because it is impossible to be less than but still greater than or equal to. just a thought.

    The OP will have to say what the code is supposed to do.

          }  // These three } were missing in the original
       }
    }
    in this case first you are saying if experience is lower than num 3 than if true, if experience num3 greater than experience

    Again, you will have to ask the OP what the code is supposed to do.
