When working with my clients, I noticed something and I wanted to share this with you!
You won’t hear me say this phrase very often if ever again… but in this situation, if you’re a woman, this is the time to start thinking like a man!
It is a well-known fact that men and women think differently about almost everything! When it comes to applying for jobs, it’s no different.
A man will check out a job description, and it may say:
“You need to complete a handstand and a cartwheel in order to be considered for this role”. A man is likely to say, “I can’t do that but hey, I can do a roll over”. Therefore, he’ll complete his application and send it off.
A woman will look at the same job description, and think “Hey, I can do the handstand, but I can’t do the cartwheel. OK, let’s move on, I can’t do this job”. Basically, most women will want to know that they are able to do 99% of what’s covered in the job description before even considering applying!
