Applying to jobs comes with a whole lot of imposter syndrome. I often scroll through jobs in my field and see one or two bullet points in job listings that I don’t completely understand and makes me wonder if I would be even qualified at all.
How have I worked in communications for five years and still don’t feel prepared for these jobs?
Realistically, I think a company would be open to training someone on one or two things. But my unrealistic brain just feels like a fraud. Should I know this lingo? Am I even suitable for this job? Would I be able to learn?
It’s been so long since I’ve felt like I’ve truly had to start from the ground up. When you’re first out of college, it feels much more acceptable to not know everything in a job listing. You’re entry level, someone should be there to guide you. But as I get deeper into my career, I doubt all of my qualifications. It feels like there’s no such thing as the perfect fit or I just lack the necessary skill sets.
