    Apply! What’s the harm in that? The worst they can do is say no, but if you don’t apply you’ll never know!

    It can’t hurt to try.  The worst that happens is you don’t get the job and then you are in the exact same position you are in now.

    Does it say degree required? Do you have a degree? It can’t hurt to apply, but I doubt a manager-level position would go to someone without experience or a degree.

    It doesn’t hurt to apply.  We’ve had people apply that aren’t qualified for certain positions but have kept their resume and contacted them when a more appropriate position came up.  You may apply for it and end up with something else from the same organization, worth a shot.

    The worst they can do is say no. Go for it! At least apply. 🙂

    I always say APPLY.  And as pp mentioned worst case you don’t get the job…but even that can be a great way to start making connections. 

     I’ve been part of a team that was hiring for a management position and we had one candidate that was not qualified for the management position we were filling but when another middle level management position was available we called them up begging for them to come join our team!

    Apply! It’s always a good idea to have an updated CV on hand, so if you have to revise it now or 6 months from now, you’re going to have to sort it out regardless. 

    And just cause I’m a grammar nazi, make sure you do a thorough read of your CV/Cover letter as you spelled “lose” as “loose.”  I know this is the Bee and not a cover letter, and it’s an easy mistake to make.  No judgment, just a reminder to read the letter aloud and have someone else proof it before you send it off.  🙂  Good luck!

    I was underqualified for the job I have now when I applied for it.  I did not expect to get an interview, let alone the job, but I was pleasantly surprised when I got both.  I say go for it!

    @longdistanceco_ca:  I’m a total grammar nazi too! I was just checking to see if anyone mentioned the incorrect spelling of “lose.”

    It definitely doesn’t hurt to apply!  If nothing else, it’s an expression of interest and an opportunity to make contact with a place you want to work.
