Because you're worth more...?

It's not that shocking. Unfortunately, we are now known for our over-sized black bears.

Be careful, female mantises rip the males head off during sex.

I have an elven inch walking stick that loves the new dark brown garage doors.

It seems strange that "management" fears an "over-qualified" person who simply wants a job. Is it that they fear being shown up by the newbie or otherwise shamed into demonstrating their own inadequacies ? Or maybe they reckon that the pay scale isn't brilliant for such a qualified person.

Been there, done that.
Good Luck, MP.

When I was in management, I learned to be leery of hiring over-qualified people. Such people are likely to jump ship as soon as they find a position they are more qualified for. It's actually better to hire an under-qualified person, and help them to grow into the job.

My father woke me up to give him a ride to work this holiday morning. He couldn't walk 1/4 mile because it is barely raining and his muffler isn't fully attached. I would have driven that fucking Saturn until the muffler did fall off...

Yeah, usually. But employee turnover is always expensive. And anyway, it wasn't my money.
