The Topic: How to Address Being Tagged Overqualified for a Job
One of the most frustrating reasons for not getting a job is being told that you are “overqualified” for the position.
Have you heard comments like:
- You’re too overqualified for this job
- We have decided to move forward with another candidate
- It looks like a big step back for you
- You understand this is a junior position
- Why would you be interested in such a junior position?
- It looks you have much more experience than the job requires
Annoying right? Especially when you have the qualifications, personality, and skills for the job.
So come and listen to Maya provide you with the tools and know-how on answering these questions and landing that perfect job.
