I've worked before as a sports camp counselor for younger children. I had to deal with the kids as well as their parents.
Im wanting to apply as a Product Specialist for Tesla. You know, the greatest electric car company in today's day and age.
The one thing holding me back from applying is that "customer service experience is required". I haven't worked in a customer service department, but I know what it takes and again, I had to keep and deal with the parents and kids in a professional manner as the camp counselor (it was a city job).
I am extremely knowledgeable and absoluely stand behind tesla. Though I'm sometimes a quiet person, working for Tesla would make me talk people's ears off (ask my family and friends lol). I know a lot of details and facts about the cars, and I learned the facts because I'm just so enthusiastic about the cars. It's a genuine interest of mine and I know working wouldn't actually feel like I'm working.
Thank you so much for reading

Go for it man. Somezimes , requirements like those are not set on stone. Especially if you otherwise have other qualities that make you stand out from other applicants or if you otherwise have had similar experience that made you require the exactly same skills as someone who have work ed in customer service. They might still consider you. Wouldn't hurt to try. You gotta admit it and be direct about your lack of experience though, and then continue telling them why they should still consider you1

As an owner, and manager when we put a list of requirements into a job description it's because of the skills that will be needed. Understand that you will be competing with many other applicants, but your enthusiasm may be a big benefit in your favor. I'd send in a resume with a very catchy cover letter explaining why YOU must work for this company, and see what happens. The worst that they can say is "no" and even that maybe "you don't fit this position, but you might work out here instead." And offer you a different job. You never know unless you ask. Good luck to you.1
