Facebook Career Fairy: Overqualified With a Grad Degree

Unfortunately, sometimes going the extra mile with your education can make you "overqualified" for jobs. Seems kind of backwards, right? However, there are things you can do if you're overqualified with a grad degree. This week, we received the following career wish from one of our Facebook fans:
