One of the most frustrating reasons you can get rejected from a job is because you’re ‘overqualified’.
There are a number of reasons you might apply for a job you’re overqualified for. You might want to work for the right company, to pursue the work you love doing or even just to keep a lid on your stress levels. You could also be starting a family, and want to shift your work/life balance to accommodate this. Regardless of the reason, over-qualification is a difficult hurdle to overcome.
Recruiters look for candidates who are a great match for the job on offer and if your CV is showing you’re overqualified there are many reasons as to why you would no longer be considered.
