Would you accept a job that you weren't qualified for?

On the Job training is the best way to learn any job.

Depends. If its a small company they're probably depending on you to know what you're doing, and they won't have the resources to teach you. But if it's a large company with a lot of accountants, take it, you'd probably be able to learn on the job. Worst case scenario they wash you out after 3 months, which was a risk they were willing to take.

pro tip: don't get into accounting if you're as bad at math as I am.

otherwise, go for it!

I'd take it especially if the financial offering is a healthy dose. I'd gladly learn what I don't know if that check pleases me.

Depends if I am capable of learning the job. Many jobs lets you train for it before being sent to actual work (if you can't learn though, they won't hire you anyways).

Most jobs have insanely unrealistic requirements attached to them. If I only applied to jobs I qualified for I'd never get one. The important thing is that you are able to learn new skills, and that they are willing to train you whatever it is you need to know that you don't already know. Go for it!

You could explain that you want the job, but would require some training. That's the overly honest approach.

No becuase I wouldn't be able to keep it for long. I would probably get fired.

At least you can get a job. Some people like me feel like it is close to impossible to find ANY job.
