A listener emailed me to say she was being deemed overqualified for the jobs she was applying to and asked if we could do a podcast on the subject.
Overqualified generally means you are a CFO applying for a controller job or a Director of Marketing of a $20 million firm applying for a Marketing Manager job of a start-up company ... you bring more experience to the table than the job needs and employers get afraid that you will be bored or will leave when a better job comes along.
-How to deal with being overqualified with your search?
-How do you advise people to craft their resume if they want to apply to a job that might be overqualified for?
-Is it wise to dumb down your resume to appear less qualified by removing certain duties and roles?
