Job applications present us with a list of desired traits, characteristics and experience. Everyone who applies to that job will likely cite how they meet the stated criteria. So if everyone states how they meet the expected criteria, how do you stand out? How can you make it easy for the recruiter or recruiting team to remember you?

Play to your other strengths and spin your weaknesses to your advantage. You may meet most of the criteria but you can leverage your experience in other areas to make yourself unique and show you bring something special to the table.
