Why You Should Still Apply to a Job Even If You Don't Meet the Exact Job Requirements

Why You Should Still Apply to a Job Even If You Don't Meet the Exact Job Requirements | Making more of your day | Scoop.it
Don't let a job listing's list of criteria intimidate you. The list of requirements are more a wish list for the ideal candidate and may not need to be taken so literally, advises the Daily Muse.
Nadia Edwards-Dashti's insight:

Lists of skills are not always 100% the essential list - and every move should be about what you can gain and what you will learn from the experience - and the same for hirng managers - if you can teach someone some of teh skills on your wish list they will be far more committed!

Melissa St Hill's curator insight, June 25, 2013 1:09 AM

This is a really informative article, as a lot of people are under the impression that they need to meet 100% of skills listed within a job description. If most of the criteria is met and you can read the actual involvement of the role then this is the most important part. Speak with consultants over the role and see if you match up and can do the job - don't forget if you are at least half way there, you can grow into the role.

The Big Difference Between Leaders and Managers

The Big Difference Between Leaders and Managers | Making more of your day | Scoop.it

Leaders are a causal force — they cause things to happen that were not going to happen without their influence.

 

They are future oriented and they envision possibilities that are often discontinuous with the past. They are adept at innovating, articulating a vision, architecting strategies, and inspiring growth and development in others on behalf of the vision.

 

Leaders are rich in determination and unwavering in resourcefulness. Thus, every person in every role has the opportunity and responsibility to demonstrate leadership — to be fully engaged and to perform beyond their day-to-day management responsibilities.
