In this video, Entrepreneur Network partner HR superstar ZJ Hadley admits she had a hard time finding jobs without a college degree. Instead, she began to rely increasingly on other abilities -- in networking, meeting people on a constant basis and, at times, stalking recruiters. 

If you are in the process of job-searching and feel underqualified, a willingness to learn is the number one indicator of success -- a takeaway that Hadley discovered from experience. The HR specialist describes her own time jumping through multiple hoops to land her first job, and from there, working hard to show recruiters that she can pick up new skills and exercise flexibility.
