The Candidate's Dilemma: How to Break Into a Field That Won't Let You In

Do you love job hunting? Do you enjoy being rejected by faceless HR bots? Do you relish the feeling of despair that comes with realizing that you're not "experienced" enough for a job that requires no experience? Then you're in luck, my friend, because the candidate's dilemma is the gift that keeps on giving! Here's how it works: you want a job, but you don't have the experience for it. The employer wants someone with experience, but won't give you a chance to gain that experience. It's like trying to catch a fish without a fishing rod, or trying to climb a mountain with no hands. But don't worry, there are plenty of ways to navigate this maze of illogic and frustration! First, you can try highlighting your transferable skills and accomplishments. For example, if you're applying for a job as a rocket scientist but don't have any rocket science experience, you could showcase your skills in basket weaving, macrame, or interpretive dance.
