A recruiter contacted me about a solution architect position. I looked at their requirements and I may not be qualified for the role since I only have 1.5 years technical experience. However , it’s an exciting role, salary is almost double my current one, and it’s fully remote. It’s less likely I would get the role but any thoughts how I should respond to the email?

Just say yes what’s the worst that can happen? Sell yourself into the role - requirements in a job posting are just suggestions

You may have some other experience that makes you more attractive a candidate than you think.


Yea do it

Read thru the skills and cram. Interviewing will give you experience and insight if you ask questions on what they are looking for. Use this as an opportunity to learn, if nothing else

How did all the tech/media companies decide on a “creative strategist” title where the job is clearly creative, not strategy?

“Strategist” = noun, person, role
“Creative” = adjective, modifier (in this case)
“Creative strategist” is a strategist, even if a lame sort of strategist, but not a creative.

Did they realize how dumb “strategic creative” sounds, so they subverted grammar to make it sound better?

It’s mostly creatives supporting media sales.


Hi Cyber 🐠, I’m interviewing this week for a Forensics Investigations industry role. First time I’ve interviews for industry.
