Have you ever applied for a job, knowing you did not quite meet all of the qualifications? Don't worry- according to CNBC 84% of HR managers would hire someone despite them not fulfilling all job qualifications. These companies are open to teaching employees through training rather than waiting for the perfect candidate to fall into their lap.
In your job search, don't be afraid to apply for positions that stray a bit from your skills. Although taking a major leap will likely not be fruitful, stepping out of your comfort zone will open you up to great new experiences. Always be honest with hiring managers about your credentials, but also be sure to mention what you have learned from training in the past.
Now get out there and start applying! Have you ever gotten a job offer despite not perfectly meeting the criteria? Let us know in the comments!
