How do I know if I'm eligible for the job?
Review the "requirements" section of the job posting.
Preferred vs. Required Status
Preferred status or skills are those an applicant does not have to possess in order to be considered a “candidate” for the position; however, they are seen as “good to have” qualities that will lead to a higher level of success for the applicant.
Required status or skills means that you must be able to fill all or almost all of the listed items.
