One of the reasons a person will not apply for a job is not feeling qualified enough, feeling as though they fall short.
And if you’re a chef looking at a vacancy for a senior engineer, you’re right.
But when you find a role that is similar to what you have experience in whether it is the same field or you just have have transferable skills, why not go for it.
You don’t need to meet every requirement on the vacancy to actually get the job. And you definitely don’t need to be dishonest on your application.
Each company will do things differently so even if you have done it before you’ll probably have to learn it in a new way.
It’s easy to get put off by something you haven’t done before but it’s also important to remember that it might not be difficult just because it’s new.
When it comes to applying for a job you don’t have to meet everything specified in the job description, almost qualified is good enough.
It’s the kind of situation where you have nothing to lose and a lot to gain.
