The Job Listing Describes the Perfect Candidate, Not the Probable One

When employers write job ads, they list the qualifications of the ideal person for the job. They know -- and accept -- that they probably won't actually find someone who meets every criterion, but they still ask for that person, just in case.

If you happen to be the perfect candidate for the job, great. But in the much more realistic case that you're a decent but not ideal candidate, you still may be the best applicant to emerge.

This Test Is Graded on a Curve

Thanks to years of schooling, you've probably become quite accustomed to being graded on a percentage basis. If you earn 90 percent of the points in a course, you get an A; if you earn 80 percent, you get a B; and so on.

On the other hand, your job search is graded on a curve. How you stack up in an employer's eyes is based on how you compare to the other applicants.

So let's say an employer thinks you're a B-level candidate and concludes that all the rest of the applicants are C-level or worse. If this were a class, all you'd be able to say is, "I got a B." But in this competition, you can say, "I got the job!"...
