      Pretty much everything now works. Except being male, being white or being Christian. Then again, you could always self-identify as something else.
  • I would list all my volunteer work that I've done and any skills I've acquired over the years
    • Boola Boo
      Thank You, good idea.
  • How passionate you are about that particular job and your willingness to develop your skills.
    • Boola Boo
      I like that, good idea.
  • Talk about how your skills may be transferable to this role.
    • Boola Boo
      Yes, good idea.
  • I found good advice here: https://ivypanda.com/essays/professional-communication/. As for me, I am working on a job without needed qualifications and nowadays it`s pretty common. I just showed them the passion for the job, that`s all.
  • You got a lot of good answers! I think the only thing they didn't mention that I'd suggest is to be sure and stress the advantages to hiring a mature person, reliability, dependability etc. In the interview ask about their retirement plan as if you're going to be loyal till you die. Then instead of sending them a card thanking them for their time and consideration, send them a little basket with a roll of toilet tissue and hand sanitizer or bleach wipes! haha
  • Simply highlight the similar experiences you have, and explain why would you be the best choice!😎
  • Tell them that you will work for free for as many hours as they like for as long as they like, and they will put you right to work.
