One of the greatest challenges that job seekers over 45 face is the perception that they are over-qualified (or too old) for many of the positions they pursue. Managers, Directors, VPs and C-level individuals are often competing against less experienced candidates that are 10-15 years younger. And from the employer’s perspective, there is often concern that an “over-qualified” candidate has less energy, is too expensive, isn’t current from a technology standpoint and will leave once they find a job that compensates them better. What exacerbates the situation is the fact that many job seekers in their 50s or 60s often haven’t rehearsed their story to deter all of the stereotypes and preconceived notions that present challenges to them. You have the experience and you need to turn it into an asset, not an obstacle. 
During this webinar, ABBY (“Absolutely Abby”) KOHUT will present powerful strategies on “How to Overcome the Challenges of Being Over-Qualified”. She’ll explain why it’s impossible to BE over-qualified unless YOU believe you ARE over-qualified. During her presentation, Abby will help you learn the following:
  • How to answer the over-qualified question
  • The REAL reason why recruiters and hiring managers are concerned about hiring over-qualified applicants 
  • How to change your cover letter and resume if you believe you are over-qualified 
  • 7 ways to explain on an interview why being over-qualified is an advantage 
  • How to handle the “age factor”
