Yes.

But don't read too much if you don't get an interview.

There are so many qualified applicants for each position at those companies. Inevitably there will be a group of people that meet each required and preferred experience, no matter how esoteric.

...(cont) I believe that I’m capable, I just don’t think any of my past experiences would be any different from any of the other qualified candidates that apply

Sure is

Took a base pay cut early in my career to take on a very different role that I was excited about. I was extremely close to turning it down because I was worried about what others would think with me going backwards in salary vs the norm in consulting with exit ops. However since I’ve started, I enjoy my day to day 10x more than I used to, the people I work with are genuinely excited about what they do, and the RSUs more than made up for my pay cut. Sometimes it’s worth taking the leap of faith!
