So, I just recieved my MBA this year, which I am personally pretty happy about. But I have been having a very hard time landing worthwhile interviews and absolutely no job offers. I have found that I have now been getting passed on jobs because I am overqualified. Yet, if I apply for a slightly higher position I am under qualified. So my question is, should I just remove it from my Resume?

If you think you nailed that interview or the recruiter said, Keep in touch, don't just sit and wait for the phone to ring with a job offer. Instead, be proactive. There are things you should do after a job interview that can increase the odds of getting a second interview or landing a job offer.

With the invention of Automated systems has come the delay of finding jobs. It’s far easier for companies to sift through selected resumes and ignore the majority of those submitted to them. Atlanta is a city full of ATS it seems. It’s also a city full of recruiters who are quick to chat you up and then disappear without a trace. Last December I was laid off. In the late March/ April time frame I thought I had a job lined up. The company didn’t... see more

I was working near Corpus Christi, Texas and voluntarily left the job market a couple of months before Hurricane Harvey hit to focus on tackling family, property management and elder care issues. In the process, I relocated to Florida and have been busy assisting the retired military communities which I am a part of, volunteering my services as a property manager and business consultant and tutoring.

Hey All, I was making $16/hr at a law firm when I was 22. Here we are 15 years later and business are still offering $14-$15/hr for the same thing I have been doing. I'm mid-30's now and it seems I'm over qualified for many Administrative positions and underqualified by 2 or 3 pieces of knowledge for $50-60K positions. I do not understand what is going on the atmosphere right now but there's definitely something. Bottom line is no one can live... see more

I had a great interview, did a drug test(which was clean) for them to come back and tell me I was over qualified to do the job they were 'hiring for' yet my cousin and a few friends work for that company and they have(company) those that don't want to work hard(quit in a few days). Or a few that have to actually been given Narcan just to live. I don't get it. What is this over qualified? As this isn't the only company to tell me this.

After being laid off as result of investor buyout, merging 2 companies together, 4 yrs of double domain upheaval, new business model, hardware changes, major software swapping, remote contractors being remotely supported and an on call phone shared by 3 people making work/life balance nonexistent, I was finally hit by tenured personnel being replaced by contract workers like in most other departments.

My displacement happened after 21 years with the same company at the age of 47. A new CEO, a changing of the guard, so to speak. I have struggled for the past 6 years. I am either over-qualified or under-qualified (generally based on specific industry experience). I can learn any technology and have successfully managed technical people, complex global projects and successfully transitioned between vastly different industries. However, in a... see more

It's sad when a degree keeps you from getting jobs. People think you can find something better than what they are offering in your field. Right now it's not as much about the pay as it is an income.

After working for a company for 11 years, being told you are one of there most valuable employees, always goes above and beyond and to find out that people coming in and being there for 1 to 2 years maybe last makes more then year and even as of today still you are the most lowest paid employee.
