It turns out that reciting your long history of experience isn't the best way for an interviewer to identify if you're the perfect person for a role. As you know from previous episodes, it's more about how you frame what you've done, and more importantly, how you frame what you'll be able to do for a prospective employer.

I'm not suggesting that you dumb down your skills, accomplishments, or anything else. What I am suggesting is, in an interview, in these conversations, you [should] apply the concept that it isn't all about you, so the other person sees you as a great candidate. We think that we need to tell them everything, but you'll slip into convincing energy, or even steam roll over the hiring manager and eliminate yourself from consideration! - Elissa Shuck, LYWL EP.35

In this episode, you'll discover the reason why someone would be considered over-qualified, how to strategize to explain your experience the right way, and how to apply these concepts to actually get hired.
