Z is for… Zzzz

Z is for… Are you sure you want this job – you may be bored?

In a job market where jobs are scarce it is often the case that a candidate is applying for job that they are overqualified for. If the interviewer feels that you are overqualified for the job they may feel reluctant to hire you as they may be worried you will move on in a few months.

If you get asked you need to be able to convince the interviewer that you want the job, that you will work hard and you will not get bored.

Even better you may be able to convince them that you love doing this type of work. Keep the emphasis on the positive.

This is a question that can easily be prepared as you will already know whether you are overqualified for the job. You may already be worried that you may get bored on the job. Work out your strategy in advance.

Using your career journal will help you find inspiration for Interview Questions and help you prepare, practice and review your answers. This can be a great technique which is why I have chosen to use the A to Z of Interview Questions Posts as Journal Prompts. If you don’t already have a career journal this is the perfect excuse to get started.
