If you don’t have the exact skills a job posting lists, do you still have a chance to be hired for the position? It’s definitely possible, especially if you can communicate that the skills you do have can be applied to the job. Find Your Dream Job guest Ian Yee says that one of the best ways to talk about your transferable skills is to answer questions with stories of how the skills you possess meet the requirements. Ian reminds us that all of our experiences provide us with skills and abilities that we can use in our workplace. He also stresses the need to highlight those abilities in an interview.
