Is there a possibility for someone with zero work experience to get hired? Research from TalentWorks recruitment search group has revealed that 61% of all full-time entry-level jobs need over three years of experience. According to Jaclyn Westlake, a former agency recruiter, and an HR manager, meeting at least 80% of the requirements listed in a particular job description, will actually get you the job. 

There were users who absolutely disagreed on the point:
