Career Advice #2: What Hiring Managers Ask When You're Overqualified for a Job

1. Is This Person Trying to Make a Career Change?
You have to show them that yes, you are looking for a change.

2. Does This Person’s Current Title Accurately Reflect His or Her Role?
Because 'senior titles' may also put off recruiters. Everyone has some doubts on how much much work senior people do.

3. Will This Person Be Comfortable Reporting to Her Boss?
Thus is very important. You have to show you are a team player.

Self Help Advice: Rewire Anxiety Into Confidence By Changing Your Outlook of Your Future

Eric Ravenscraft writes in Wall Street Oasis that just by changing our thinking about your future ('I will make it here') has the power to improve your behavior from nervous to confident, ready to take on whatever comes next.

Eric says,

What if instead of seeing horrific failures, you saw a successful, happy version of yourself? What if you knew - with the same absolute certainty you currently have about your bad future - that things were going to go extremely well for you? That’s what confidence is: looking into the future, and seeing something you like.
