Need a project manager. 5+ years of experience,
Six Sigma certification
, advanced understanding of deep learning and the ability to carry out an operation if necessary.
Who really corresponds to all of the above? It turns out, by and large, no one. And you have the same chance to get an invitation to an interview whether you have 50% of the competencies required in a job, or 90%.
 
Science of job search, part VII: you need to meet only 50% of the "requirements" of the vacancy
 
We were curious how many requirements for a vacancy really needed to be met - so we decided to analyze vacancies and resumes from our database in more than 6000 cases of applications in 118 industries. We found that meeting the requirements listed in the job is important, but there is no need to meet all of them.
 
3r3208.  
Your chances of being invited to an interview begin to grow from where you meet approximately 40% of the requirements of 3r33217.  
If you meet 90% of the requirements, your chances are not much higher to get an invitation than if you have 50% of the required skills
 
For women, the numbers are about 10% lower. That is, the probability starts to grow from 30%, and at the level of 40% the probability is the same as at 90% 3r33333. do not apply for a job if they do not meet 100% of the requirements of 3r3232. . It became interesting to us, maybe there is something in it - maybe gender discrimination and hr-managers are more demanding on women. But it turns out, our discovery refers to women as well as to men. And in fact, the chances of getting an interview for women are starting to grow by meeting 30% of the requirements.
 

 
As you can see on the chart, the overall trend for women is the same as for men, but starting with 40% of job requirements, the chances are almost the same as for 90%. Also, on average, women are more likely to be invited to interview than men.
 
Despite this, we found the same trend, 3r3391. as in other studies
- women are more likely to abandon positions where they meet only part of the requirements. Over the past 8 weeks, 64% of our female users refused at least one position, where they met only 50–60% of the requirements, while among men these were 37%.
 

 
So, girls, you, too, should be served in positions where you meet only part of the requirements.

3r3111. You do not necessarily get an invitation to an interview, even if you have 90% of the requirements for a job 3r-3227.
 
The baseline scenario is a 15% chance of being invited to an interview. Applying for an interview or a new position is a game with numbers - the more applications you leave, the more likely you are to get an interview, and the more interview you will pass, and as a result, more chances to get a job offer.
 
Or in other words, if you want to get a job offer, then the number of applications that you need to leave is a function of the “coefficient in the interview” (which% of the applications goes into the interview) and in "job offer"). More specifically:
the number of applications sent to receive the offer = n /"coefficient in interview" /"coefficient in the job offer" 3r3121.

Obviously, raising your “coefficient in interviews” and “coefficient in job offers” is beneficial, but what if you can't find 45 jobs that suit you? Never harmful to expand the scope of the search. Naturally, your “interview rate” will be lower, but it will be balanced due to the greater number of job applications.

Summary
 
If you are looking for a perfect job, do not be afraid of the long list of requirements for a job!
 
3r3208.  
Even if you meet only 50% of the requirements, feel confident and click “Apply”
 
The rule works for girls no worse than men (and in fact, even better) 3r-3217.  
Expand your search to increase your chances of being interviewed for
 
 
And remember that getting an invitation for an interview is a big breakthrough - this is your chance to prove to yourself that you can do work, even if you do not meet all the “requirements” of a job.
 
Methodology 3r33227.
 
Initially, we randomly selected 6348 applications for work from 668 different users of our[TalentWorks]platform. . After that, using our algorithms, we selected the competencies of the original vacancies and the competencies of the people who applied to them. Finally, we grouped the results by coincidence of these competencies and performed a regression for the “interview rate”. All analytics and graphics are made in Python: pandas, sklearn, scipy and bokeh.
