How to Deal with Being Overqualified.

Karen Rehn writes extensively on employment and interviewing issues. Her recent post for HH Staffing is a realistic look at making ‘the overqualified issue’ work to your advantage. Let’s face it… many candidates choose to “dial down” a high-pressure career path in exchange for a more balanced life. Some are forced into considering alternatives because traditional opportunities have seemingly vanished. Whatever the reasons, you may have to answer to your interviewer when she says, “You seem to be overqualified for what we think this position requires.” How you answer that question could determine whether you get the job that has really piqued your interest… or the one that will keep food on the table. Ms. Rehn provides a step-by-step approach that makes being overqualified work for you.
