I have a masters degree and 3 years experience... What's the position?

like

Absolutely! Never let that discourage you!

1yr at Big 4 experience counts more than 1 yr at industry

I know on paper I don't. My question is in people's experiences, is the # of yrs exp typically flexible?

like

Totally flexible. Don't take yourself out of the running before you even start. Let them make the cut if needed. Be confident.

Here's the thing. First screen is HR who will go by a checklist, yes/no decides if you get an interview. So, to make it more promising, find someone on the inside who can tell HR you are a superstar and years don't count.... Sorry, have all the respect for HR and all, but they recruit for a 100 different positions, and can't be an expert of all trades!

I had a recruiter/head hunter get me an interview for an industry position that "required" 7 years exp, when I had 3. I received a generous offer

like

Just fluff your years of exp using internships to get past HR, then crush the interviews

Go for it, most of the times the experience needed is inflated

They always inflate the number of years on the posting. Never hurts to drop your line.

Thanks guys appreciate the support. So I should find someone on the inside and reach out to them first? I don't really know anyone there - it'll have to be a cold email.
