As a job seeker you may come across a role you really like but feel you are underqualified – but should this stop you from applying? There are lots of different roles and qualifications which are stated in the job advert, but that doesn’t mean to say they are mandatory. Sometimes experience can favour a candidate, and employers are not always expecting everyone to tick all the boxes.
Outstanding performances and achievements can often outshine relevant work experience, and if you are struggling to make the employer realise that you are more than capable of performing well in the role, you can always focus their attention on your proven track record – no matter how different your work history is to your new venture.
We also have some great guides on how to get a job over Xmas, when you should apply, and the types of roles you can expect to see over the festive period. We offer tips on how early to apply, how to write a CV for a Xmas position, and how to plan for the possibility of gaining full time employment come January.
If you’re looking for a new job or a career change in the New Year, we have some great advice on how to create the perfect CV. Every time January comes around you might be thinking it’s time for a change, but how do you make the big decision to make a complete career change?
There are lots of ways you can get a new job or make a career change, and putting it off each year is only going to increase your frustrations. It doesn’t always matter to an employer that you don’t have relevant work experience, and there are lots of ways you can demonstrate your transferable skills and how you can still benefit an employer.
