I Don’t Have Enough Experience To Land My Dream Job!

0

Dear Experts,

I am in job search mode, and have decided to take the opportunity to transition into another field. It is a role I have performed in the past but not titled. Advised by professionals/experts in the field, that it is feasible. However, although my targeted resume has gotten to the hiring managers, and even some interviews, I do not get offer. I don’t have enough experience to land my dream job. How do I find the right balance? I don’t want to give up on this new dream!
