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?" - ValerieCongratulations, Valerie! The Facebook Career Fairy chose your wish and answered it with a personalized video! Not only that, but you will also receive one FREE month inside CareerHMO, the virtual membership site that gives the everyday professional access to elite-level career coaching!
