With so many people looking for full-time jobs and part time work in this current economy, many very highly qualified candidates find themselves in a position where they need to take jobs for which they may be overqualified. Getting back to work is, after all, the important thing, and sometimes – especially when you’ve been hunting for a new job for some time – you’ll take just about any job you can get like engineer jobs, media jobs, sales jobs, and social worker jobs. In many instances, you may be considering taking part-time jobs in order to continue searching for jobs in your chosen profession. Working on a part-time basis still gives you the time and freedom to continue your job hunt but also lets you keep some money rolling in with which to pay everyday expenses. Or perhaps you’ve simply decided you no longer want to pursue a high stress, long hours career in the field in which you’ve previously worker. There are plenty of people who make a significant career change in order to pursue other interests or simply cut down on job-related stress. If you’re one of those individuals, you may have some hurdles to overcome when it comes to being overqualified for part time work.
