Abby is back in town and will share her insights into the job search. Many seasoned job seekers find themselves being called overqualified because they have more years of experience than the job description calls for. Learn powerful strategies to overcome your interviewer’s misconceptions about you. It’s impossible to BE overqualified unless YOU believe you ARE overqualified.


In this seminar you will learn:
– How to answer the overqualified question
– The REAL reason why recruiters AND hiring managers are concerned about hiring overqualified applicants
– How to change your cover letter and résumé if you believe you are overqualified
– Seven ways to explain in an interview why being overqualified is an advantage
– How to handle the “age factor”

Please bring a brown bag lunch
