I think over qualified means in both practical as well as rhetorical knowledge. I can agree of you tell on the basis of theoretical knowledge but in practical I know I am under qualified. So I have to improve my self and thus I think I am just qualified candidate for this job.

I know that I'm an qualified candidate because if I'm not an qualified candidate I will be not here in front of you sir/ madam, but whether I'm overqualified or under qualified has to be judged by you sir/ madam. I am very eager to know the answer from yourself for this query.

If you think I am overqualified then that a compliment for me!

For me, I don't think I am over qualified as I have only theoretical Knowledge and practical knowledge. And when it comes to knowledge learning never ends.

So, being freshers I am not over qualified.

Overqualified? Some would say that I'm not overqualified but fully qualified. With due respect, could you explain the problem with someone doing the job better than expected?

I'm here because this is a company on the move and I want to move up with you. With more than the minimal experience to just skim by, I offer immediate returns on your investment. Don't you want a winner with the skill sets and attitudes to do just that?

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.

Ankit Sharma : Perfect Answer Sir.

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.
