I would let the employer know that im a fast learner and that my interest and eagerness to do the job will allow me to excel in my job and that when I pursue something I am dedicated to what I am doing if given the opportunity

the best way is to impress him by your speech then you will be appointed.

I think if you are a hard worker and try to always exceed what is expected from your employer you can stand out. Always keep a professional attitude and presentation but try and keep your work exciting at the sametime.

A few thoughts that come to mind... Be unique so that you stand out from the crowd of more qualified people. Be honest, admitting that you may be underqualified at this time. The employer probably isn't stupid. If you think you're underqualified, then so will he/she. But stress that it's only a matter of timing, and not a matter of skillset. And as a result, the employer can attain your services at a bargain compared to others. Money talks. Show how you can save/make the company money in this way and other ways.
