One of the things that I want to accomplish in an interview it to convince the employeer that taking a risk on me would be worth it.
It is a risk because I do not have any direct experience in the particular field. This is because the first 5 years of my career have been in aeronautical engineering (B.S in Mechanical Engineering) and working on my MBA.
As managers what would make you take the risk of highering somebody without experience with my background?
What are skills and personality traits that cover the lack of experience?
