With all these jobs out there, is there any way to
underqualify yourself if someone were to say you're overqualified? I don't want to reduce or increase the years of research experience I have under my belt, otherwise, I would see myself as a fraud. For some positions that require up to 10 yrs of experience, what type of person are they looking for? Thanks in advance.

I've held various

I left my state job 5 years ago to care for my children. I am 45 years old and looking and applying for jobs with no success. I am either under qualified or over qualified. I do hot fit in anywhere. I have not become discouraged :)
Am just tired of job search. Its either you're over-qualified or under-qualified. What do employers want, really?? people are out there and competent to do the job, just give us the chance, this process makes you even questions your self confidence, it practically consumes your energy. I've been holding on for quiet sometime but it starting to get to me.
I finally found a position I have been trying to get into for years. I had th phone interview and now have a in person interview with the VP, the manager and lead. Now I feel that I am way under qualified especially looking at their profiles. I have a hard time articulating what I am trying to say and feel I am going to trip up and look like a fool. I want to cancel the interview any suggestions?
I found some jobs that I’m sure I can do but I don’t have all those years of experience they require on the job posting. Is it a good idea to go ahead and apply anyway or will my applications not even be considered? I have to find a job soon.
