overqualified email

  • “I can appreciate your concern. Can you share with me what makes you feel that way?”
  • “Oh, I’d hate to think you felt my experience would work against me. What concerns you about my qualifications being too much for the role?”
  • “Thank you for your honestly. May I ask, are you worried that my qualifications will work against me in this job? If so, how?”
  • “I”m so glad you shared your worries about my experience. What would it take to make you feel comfortable hiring me at my skill level?”
