Freshers and undergrads often complain about being rejected for little/no work experience.
Those within a job and eagerly looking to switch complain about not finding enough opportunities.
The truth is, there are opportunities everywhere and you don’t need to be super skilled/talented to grab them.
You just need a little more passion, enthusiasm, excitement and zeal for life & the work that you’re applying for. You need a good narrative and your words should be backed by actions.
The reason why passion is so prized is because it’s so rare among people. A passionate person can easily learn the required skills on the go. Ultimately, skills can be bought but can you buy passion?
