Overqualified

“Sorry, but you’re overqualified for this position.”

Overqualified. One of the worst rejection reasons for a candidate to hear. It’s frustrating and is far too common with an aging work population.

How do you overcome the “overqualified” objection?

By being genuine.

Tell your prospective employer:

  • Why you are applying for the role.
  • That you understand you appear to be overqualified on paper but have much still to learn.
  • That you are looking for a new challenge.
  • That you have researched the company and believe it to be a great fit.
  • You are motivated by not just salary but by their company culture, growth opportunities and their products/services.
