The Critical Difference Between Knowledge and Experience

#JobSeekers, here’s why you aren’t hearing back from more companies in your #JobSearch.

Over the past two months I have reviewed nearly 300 #resumes.

Roughly 120 of them didn’t meet the outlined minimum experience.

Before you submit an application, take the time to identify whether the company is outlining KNOWLEDGE OR EXPERIENCE in their posting.

This is a subtle but important distinction.

If a company is outlining knowledge it means they want someone who has certain skills to do a job.

If they outline experience, they need someone who has actually done the work.

Don’t apply if you’re looking to gain that experience in the role (remember they are paying for someone that’s been there, done that).

If you’re unsure or want a little guidance shoot me an email, I’m happy to support your efforts.
