If you're job hunting and you've ever felt or thought that you're not qualified/good/experienced/[fill in the blank] enough, then I'm here to tell you to APPLY TO THAT JOB POSTING ANYWAYS!
I'm on the hiring/interviewing side (yes, we're hiring for all the things!) and I continue to see an imbalance of male candidates than female candidates in our candidate pool.
Obviously, there is a lot of research out there that points to why men tend to apply to job postings more than women, and I'm here to say that we see those research findings flourish in our industry and I always wish we had more females candidates to interview.
Anecdotally, I also saw this playing out when I was a TA for a design bootcamp. The male students always overshot their perception of how qualified or capable they were while the females students needed a lot more coaching and support even though they were way more qualified and talented than the male students mentioned before (not always the case; there are always exceptions to every generalization).
Don't be one of the statistics! Just apply! You do not have to do every requirement or responsibilty perfectly. You can learn on the job as long as you have a great attitude.
At worst, the company will consider you for future positions. It's always easier to reach back into the talent pool than look for new people to go through the interviewing process.
Don't hesitate to reach out for a resume review, portfolio review, or questions. Anything to get you to apply to that job!!
When interviewing, please just make sure to answer the question. You would be surprised how many times people go off on a tangent and don't actually answer the question that was asked.
