Dear Lifehacker, A company that I’d love to work for has two positions open — one I’m underqualified for and the other I’m overqualified for. I’d obviously prefer the higher paying position but am keen to join the company in any role. What’s the best way to apply for both positions without damaging my chances at either?
I don’t know about you, but every time I see “fast-paced environment” in a job ad, I think that place might be Wall Street-level intense. Job seekers and former job seekers alike, what are the phrases in job ads that make you most wary?
If you’re looking for a new job, it’s tempting to stay behind a computer, scouring job boards and other sites. In reality, the best thing for your career might be to get out and get around town, or better yet, nearby towns as well. You may find companies nearby with openings that you can research and apply for.
Your dream job just got posted, and you’re super excited. There’s just one problem: You literally have zero relevant work experience. Whether you’re a career changer or a new grad with no internships under your belt, what can you actually put on your resume that makes you look as qualified as possible?
