PB63: Am I Overqualified and How Do I Fix This?

We turned this week’s listener question into a minisode! Let us know what you think in the comments below, or if you have your own question, use the ASK P&B button. Justin left a voicemail to ask “when do you know if you’re overqualified” and what steps to take when the opportunity for advancement or promotion doesn’t exist with your current employer. On this fun episode we respond with tips for:

  • The importance of maintaining transferable and marketable skills since staying employed at the same company for over two years might plummet an employee’s lifetime earnings by almost 50-percent
  • Why Cover Letters are losing their importance in some industries and how you can increase your odds for a callback by tailoring your resume or online job profile.
  • How expanding your job search to other cities and states significantly boosts your odds of finding employment.
  • Revisiting how Boolean Searches can help narrow your job search on sites such as LinkedIn, Google Jobs, and others.
  • Using your mentors/coaches and personal network to identify current and future job opportunities.
