Answering question on application form...


I just want to get some opinions here! How would you go about answering a question on an application form about something that is desirable (not required) and seems quite important for the role...yet you simply don't have experience in it... Would you try and draw other potentially relevant things in or just be frank and say NA?


If possible I would try to show that I had experience in related areas to indicate that it wouldn't be a huge step to learn whatever the desirable thing is. I'd also say something about being willing to learn it.


Thanks AislingB! I've decided to elaborate a little, but not too much. I don't want to annoy them if they just want a straight answer. I can do more elaborating in the actual personal statement!
