I don't have the exact skills for a specific role, is there anything else I can do?

Always. Showing your enthusiasm for the role, company, and industry is the number 1 thing you could do.

If you’re finding you’re being pipped to the post because you lack one skill or area of knowledge, there’s one thing you can do. Find a way that you can gain it. Whether this be through Tafe, University, or another provider, showcase to your potential new employer that you’re interested in gaining this skill. And if you’re successful in gaining the role, ensure you follow through.
