I have come across a job opportunity of becoming a web developer. The skills I have fit the criteria for roughly 90% of what they ask for.
The employer is looking for experience using technology X, which I don't have, but I do have experience in technology Y. Technology Y is conceptually very similar to technology X, how do I convince the interviewer that I would be capable of transferring this knowledge across the two technologies?
There are a few rounds of interviews and I have already passed one Technical interview which I feel went well. I'm expecting in the next interview that I will be asked about my experience with Technology X. At this point, how can I say that I am unfamiliar with X but very good with Y and I feel the skills can be carried over as there are many similarities between the two.
How should I approach communicating that the knowledge I have can be transferred to the technology that is being used by the company I am interviewing for?
