Hiring Managers: if you have a candidate who has done the exact same job before and interviewed well, and another candidate who hasn’t done the exact same job before but has transferable skills, what would make you pick the second candidate? When I get feedback from interviews, it’s often ‘we are looking for someone who has done this role before’, and I don’t know how to move into a slightly different career if I can’t seem to land a job to begin to get experience in it.

Both of my recommenders have MBA backgrounds and currently work with me, so I don’t want to make this overkill but want to make sure I give sufficient info as well
