It may be that you are currently looking at the problem of looking for a type of work for which you do not have previous experience: either because you are starting your career, you are still studying or because you want to opt for a totally different type of work from what you were doing until now.
While it is true that without experience you will not be able to apply for all types of positions, not having worked previously does not mean that you do not have skills that can serve or experience in other types of positions that may not be applicable to what you are now looking for :
- Motivation. It may seem very topical, but that is no less true: being seen with real desire to have this position can benefit you a lot to be the final candidate. Remember, enthusiasm is contagious!
- Highlight your skills. You can always learn how a job works, but the skills you have is something that already goes with you. In fact, even if you have experience in a specific job position, the new company will always have to tell you how they manage things. So it’s time to think: what things in your way of being and in your way of working can benefit the company? For example: being decisive, the ability to lead, being able to work under pressure… You can demonstrate these skills not only in a job: in studies, volunteering or extracurricular activities.
- Training. It is important that you stand out, both in the case that you are starting in your career as if you are looking to change sectors, that you never stop learning. Take advantage of your job profile or job interview to highlight that you not only want to have that job, but that you are already preparing for it with studies. There are many free online courses that can help you with this and that you can adapt 100% to your schedule.
In short, the key is, first of all, to see the company that can hire you with the mentality of ‘in the end they form people’: we all understand that at some point we have not had experience and that it is based on work that we have acquired, because at some point another company has decided that you were potentially good for the position. So your goal is to show the recruiter that you are qualified for the position and that you have plenty of motivation and enthusiasm to spare in order to master that new job. Remember: you are unstoppable!
