It doesn't matter if I am overqualified or not. The fact is I have enough knowledge and skill for the given job and I can use that to give satisfactory performance. Also, overqualification doesn't makes me unsuitable for the job.

Normally What our qualification shows that we are educated and can apply for the same i.e. we are eligible or not?

So with this knowledge, if I got the opportunity to work with your company giving better results then that qualification means a lot to me. At that time I will never see how qualified I am? I wl only see that because of my knowledge I am at this point.

Qualification that you see is mere numbers on the mark-sheets, and as our education system would have it, it fails to quantify our skill. If Qualification is all that you see, I can assure you a robot can do your job and you won't need humans. As per my limited knowledge, my skills are at your disposal which can give you a satisfactory performance.

Overqualified is related to education, not to knowledge.

So, maybe I am overqualified in a particular field of education, but I think I am still a learner if you consider in knowledge point of view.

So, I don't mind to b an overqualified person for the position as long as I am gaining knowledge.

According to me, what matters most is whether I'm doing the job assigned to me completely or not. No matters whatever my qualification is I should give my 100% for the fulfillment of the job's purpose and if you really consider me as an overqualified for the said position I think that's a good way of motivating a fresher like me to reach up to your expectation.

Thank you!

If you think that I am over qualified then it's a compliment for me. Thank you.

In my opinion, it's better to be overqualified instead of underqualified.

Just imagine I have 100 Rs and you are asking for 80. I can easily give you but if you will ask me 80 Rs and I have only 70 Rs then how will I give you?

So I think I am happy with my overqualification.

Comments:

Hr Enthusiast : Nice answer. But improve the language and tone it down a little. The first two lines are great. But then I can see a frustration in the sentence, like you want to say, 'What kind of a question is this?'. Yet, I would give you a thumbs up for the creative answer.

Vidya : Nice answer.

Aparna : Excellent answer.

Geethu : Super answer that I had never heard.

No.

Qualified or overqualified it's all upon knowledge. Which will be proved at practical?

In a company, work is practically so there is no one is overqualified. If there is any overqualified then company knows, there will be better work for overqualified.

No sir, I have theoretical knowledge but I lack practical experience. Instead, I think that because of additional degree I would be able to understand the working of the organization in a better way.

In fact, I am not even well qualified. I am just adequately qualified because "Knowledge has a beginning but no ending".
