1. Do not shy away from the truth
The mistake most job seekers make is trying to be diplomatic about their lack of experience. The truth is irrespective of how much falsehood has been sold, honesty pays. If you don’t have the required experience for the job, don’t shy away from this. Construct a very catchy cover letter and be open about your lack of experience.
2. Focus on the things you have
Beyond not having the required experience, focus on the things you have. Experience matters but there are other things like the right kind of attitude, motivation, and resilience. All these are necessary to do a good job. Let what you have cover up for the things you don’t have.
3. Think through the experience you don’t know you have
Most time, we are too focused on the experience attached to the job that we ignore some experience we have. Think back to some little jobs you have done but did not count as experience. For instance, if you have ever organized a successful meeting before, this can be counted as an admin experience. Think deeply before you put down your lack of experience in your cover letter.
4. Get some experience
If you keep waiting to get a job before gathering experience, you might wait for too long. Brush up your level of experience by doing some voluntary work. An internship is a good place to start.
5. Get on platforms that can help you land your dream job.
