Zoom interview for a job I don’t have any real experience for. They have my resume. Do I cut right to it that I’m not specifically qualified but eager and able to learn? Or skip over it assuming they’ve seen my background and are still interested enough to interview, fake it til you make it style?

Have allergy- and acne-prone skin so have never worn much makeup - any advice on what I could try? Thanks so much 🙏
