Well, that's what happens when you apply to McDonalds and Harvard.
27, it happened to my dad, they have people with less experience wanting the job and therefore will take a lot less money than it would have been for my dad. They told him "the job would be too easy for you." It's all about them saving money, in my honest opinion.
Over-qualified. So you probably know more than the other applicants. Because turning you down makes complete sense <sarcasm for the last sentence
@ #7, they usually do that because they assume that you will leave them immediately for a better offer, and it costs money to train people, so they want you to stay a long time. It's unfortunate, though, since the job market really is terrible, so most people have no choice but to apply for jobs beneath their skill level.
Well now that's just unfortunate. Trust me OP I'm in the same boat. This job market sucks.
Same here, I've been looking for one for over a year now and applying with no callbacks... That said, I'm in high school and have been fired before... for need of a photo identification when I had no driver's permit (2 years ago), and they didn't tell me I have to call back every day I didn't show up. (Even though, okay, yes, that should have been common sense, but I'm an idiot.) -_-
