Have you ever looked at a job posting and thought to yourself “I’m missing something they are looking for,” and then you do not apply? This happens to many job seekers.
Think of your last employment. Did you actually know everything you were going to do before you started the job? Chances are incredibly high that you learned something on the job so think of that job posting as kind of a wish list from the employer. Their ideal candidate will have all of the skills, education and knowledge required for the position. In reality, they know that their perfect candidate does not exist but it never hurts to dream so they post a job description with their wish list.
So what do you do now? You build your resume to sell the skills that you do have that they are looking for and you apply for that job. Let the employer make the decision of whether they will interview you or not. After all, you don’t get any of the jobs you don’t apply for.
