Fighting the Overqualified Label: 10 Tactics for Success

I'm overqualified for this slide

As someone with a law degree, I’ve been getting the “overqualified” excuse as of late…which is complete and utter BS since having a law degree totally DOESN’T make me overqualified for non-legal work.  I really don’t understand what having a law degree has to do with whether or not I can do the non-legal jobs I’m applying for…it’s almost as if they are expecting Matlock to show up and argue every work assignment…and yes…Matlock’s seersucker suits make him overqualified in style to even live in NY…but I neither own a seersucker suit nor plan on using my legal wiles to entertain thousands of retired Americans on a nightly basis.  Anyhoo, it’s just super frustrating and found this article interesting…and perhaps even insightful.
