Words of Wisdom...
"When I was first applying for positions,
I’d read a job
description and I would say,
"I know I can do this job but there's two bullet points here that ask for very specific skills and I don't have that experience, so I can't apply."
As a recruiter, I learned... "Yes, but you've done those exact same skills in six other places and you're way overqualified for this job.
Just because you can't do this one bullet point doesn't mean you can't learn it."
I worried so much about specifically meeting every single requirement that I never gave companies the opportunity to say, "That's fine. You can do it anyway... we'll teach you!"
