Dear Experts, I have my masters degree at 25 years old, but now I am thinking potential employers believe I'm overqualified for the jobs I'm applying for. Should I not put my masters on my resume? I have been job hunting since April with absolutely no luck in obtaining interviews or getting offers. Here is how our T.A.P. experts answered this question: Q#226 I don't recommend removing your degree. You earned it! Try rethinking your search strategy instead. (@heatherhuhman) Q#226 I'd leave it on. It's a big accomplishment to get your MA. Don't worry, many people are having trouble finding jobs. (@gradversity) Q#226 Keep Master's degree on res. Make sure res matches up 2 wording on job description + accomplishments - this is key. (@kgrantcareers) Q#226 Focus on telling employers you need to gain experience so you can apply Master's. Put degrees at bottom of resume. Q#226 If U R working, keep up the hunt & keep chin up. If unemployed, find a charity/nonprofit 2 help 4 exp! (@beneubanks) Q#226 Adv degree may NOT be cause of no offers. Evaluate resume/job search approach 1st B4 focus on degree. (@keppie_careers) Q#226 My bet: lack of return is due to the resume, maybe job-search approach, not your degree. =] (@teenarose) Q#226 MA a + in well-crafted resume; ID what u want 2 do, tailor res 2 support it; cover letter key; network. (@juliaerickson) Q#226 Could be the degree. More likely your overall presentation is not piquing interest. Focus & target vital.
