Overqualified & Experienced Job Seekers: How to Rebound and Get Noticed”

With Career Expert Andrea C. Santiago

Overqualified is a term given to job seekers when their background, education, experience, or previous title and/or salary are well beyond what the job requires.  While this may seem like a roadblock at first, there are strategies that can turn this negative perception into a positive asset, which can lead to increased opportunities for the job seeker and employer.

Join career expert Andrea C. Santiago as she discusses ways that librarians and college career counselors can help their patrons and alumnae regroup after a job loss, highlight their acquired skills, and get back on the path to career success.

Attendees will learn:

  • Why taking time to reevaluate their careers and goals for the future will aid greatly in the job search
  • How to effectively position their skills and experience
  • Techniques for answering tough interview questions
  • Ways to take advantage of available resources
  • How networking is a most valuable asset in the job search process
  • And much more!

Don’t miss this chance to help your patrons with valuable advice to achieve their career goals. Feel free to invite your colleagues, library patrons, and students!
