Many of us have been in the scenario were we are checking out job descriptions and find one that seems perfect. You read the posting and have an interest in the role, but you lack some of the stated requirements. Do you apply? I am here to tell you yes! Apply anyway. Do not count yourself out.
There is no perfect science when creating a job description. In many cases, these descriptions are describing the “dream candidate”. Often times the unintended consequence becomes that people who are largely qualified for a position, do not apply.
Now that you have made the decision to apply to this perfect position, how do you get your resume noticed.
Highlight Transferable Skills
Submit a Cover Letter
Show your Excitement
Do not allow imposter syndrome or a lack confidence to persuade you to not apply for roles you are interested in. Companies would rather hire someone who is a good cultural fit with key transferable skills versus someone who only checks all the requirement boxes on the list.
Usually hiring managers would rather someone grow into a position rather than out of it. As a new hire, ask lots of questions, look for a mentor and if you make a mistake use it as a learning experience.
