Read the job posting carefully, but don’t be afraid to submit an application if you think you’re a bit under-qualified. In our industry, a lot of blockchain startups are submitting job postings for developers with 10 years of blockchain coding experience. The problem with that is most blockchain programming languages have only been around for less than 5 years! Assume that sometimes the people making the posting may not be 100% knowledgeable about the technical expertise they are looking for. Don’t disqualify yourself just because you don’t exactly fit the specifications in the posting!
