Why women feel that they need 100% of qualifications before applying for the job

Have you ever wondered why as women, you feel the need to have 100% of the qualifications before applying to a job when men will apply with only 60%?*

Interestingly, it was NOT because you didn’t think you could do the job well.

The majority response was women said: “I didn’t think they would hire me since I didn’t meet the qualifications, and I didn’t want to waste my time and energy.”

Women don’t believe in the hiring process so they don’t even bother.

— This automatically reduces your chances of getting the job to ZERO because you didn’t apply!

— The increases the man’s chance of getting the job because now there is less competition.

— This funnels you into roles where they are underutilized, not properly challenged, and most likely underpaid for what you’re capable of doing.

The cycle of being underutilized and underpaid can start with your job selection.

If you’re ready to break out of this cycle in your career, let’s chat!

*Based on the Harvard Business Review article: “Why Women Don’t Apply for Jobs Unless They’re 100% Qualified”
