Overeducated and underemployed

This one is a little near and dear to my heart — its the boat my special guy is in as well as several close friends — people with bachelors and even masters degrees who are working in jobs that they are overqualified for. A sign of the times? A temporary thing? Bad luck? Poor interviewing/networking skills? … all of the above, none of the above, or maybe a combination. I’m honestly not sure.

Still trying to make sense of it all — but making the HR connection,

Getting a college degree still helps your chances of getting a job, but not necessarily a good one.

Some Americans are becoming overeducated for the jobs that are available to them, as data shows more college educated workers are taking low-skill jobs that are clearly below their qualifications.
