FAQ #3. Should I apply for a job even if I don’t have the specified experience?

Absolutely! If you think you can handle the job requirements, it never hurts to apply for the position. Whether you have fewer years of experience than they’re asking, or you are missing one of the hard skills mentioned, these don’t necessarily rule you out from landing the job. Skills can be learned on the job, and if you’re the best candidate, years of experience won’t matter in the end. Just don’t lie and say you have the qualifications when you don’t.

During the job search, every job seeker comes across lots of questions. How long should my resume and cover letter be? How long should I wait before following up?

This is your chance to get the answers to some of the questions you’ve been pondering during your job search. Heather R. Huhman, a Glassdoor career and workplace expert, has answered eight frequently asked questions about the job search.
