[nfbwatlk] Job hunting question

Hi all, okay, my husband and I are having a slight difference of
opinion about something, and I thought I'd ask you all. There
are some jobs out there that I absolutely know I don't qualify
for, because there are things that I have not done before, or
know that I would have a difficult, if not impossible time doing.
He says that I should apply anyway. I say why would I do that
knowing that I don't meet the qualifications they are asking for.
For instance, one job I just looked at today has lots of things
that I can do: answer phone, direct calls, word processing,
record meeting minutes and send them out to appropriate people,
order office supplies. But here are the things I'm not so sure
about: scan documents, maintain electronic AND hardcopy files,
(the hard copy ones are the ones I question) distribute mail,
create calendars, and the biggy, put text into graphics; I'm
assuming that they have the graphic and they want text imbedded
in the graphic. They also want someone who can operate a fax and
a copier, (which I have not done but assume that if I had a way
of knowing whether the page was upside down or right-side up, I
could do). Apply or not to apply, that is the question. Lol.
