I proposed lying about a skill set if a potential employer requests something specific you may be lacking. And I mean it.
Don’t do it. Instead, learn it when possible and as you move along interview process, perhaps other skills or your shiny personality will more than make up for whatever may be lacking. Or they may discover you’re perfect for a completely different position. Or you may propose something they hadn’t considered before. But that can only be done if you stay far away from the towering pile of No’s.
I say jump in with both feet, if you end up in hot water you’ll deal with it & if you don’t try you’ll never know. Life’s too short to say no, I say YES and trust in the universe and your skills.

Wrote a huge bid recently… pretended like I’ve been in the game for years, and was treated as such. Even fooled myself! Confidence dictates respect, without a doubt!
