No one ever thinks that a job interviewer would turn them down for being too qualified for a position. After all, a person that is too qualified would be a great addition to any company. The problem is that far too many people are hearing that they are overqualified in today’s uncertain job market. Oftentimes, the candidate is merely seeking a new opportunity or want to break free from some of the responsibilities that his or her other position demanded.
Never check the latest job openings and pass up on an opportunity that you would love, but would normally decline because of being afraid of the overqualified epidemic. There are ways to get around this problem.
