As a career coach and recruiter, I always get asked by clients or job seekers whether or not they should apply for a job they’re interested in. Most of the time, they’re nervous because they think they’re under-qualified.

Sometimes, they really don’t have the qualifications the job description requires. But that doesn’t automatically mean I say that they should cross the role off their list.

Why? Because all information on a job posting can be split up into what I call the ‘must-have’ and ‘preferred’ hiring requirements. You may not have all the skills the employer wants, but your track record of high performance and experience with the must-have requirements could still land you the interview you need to make an impact and land the job.

Learn more about my top tips for deciding whether or not you should apply in today’s Marketability TV video!
