What is the best response to when a potential job tells you that u r over-qualified?
The one statement I am having difficultly overcoming on job interviews is that I am overqualified. I would like some statements I can use to overcome this objection and get the jobs I want.

Then ask them why they consider that a drawback to hiring you. You are bringing greater skills to the position then they require and the company benefits.

Remind them that while the economy is trying to recover over qualified people are in abundance. Also, make sure that they know you are offering your extra skills for free until they are in a position to promote you into them.
