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:


"What advice can you offer for those who are finishing graduate degrees and have been working as graduate assistants (teaching, research, part-time positions, etc.), yet are not 'qualified' in this job market because they are over-educated and don't have multiple years of full-time work experience?" - Valerie

You might be tempted to use the generic "I'd like to add you to my professional network on LinkedIn" template, but beware! By not personalizing your message, you could lose a precious opportunity to network.
