For M'Witty...

A friend of mine is looking for a job...went on an interview, and was then told that she would not be getting an offer for the position b/c she is too smart and over qualified. I think I've come up with the perfect response:

"Oh, I'm sorry....did you just say that I'm TOO SMART for this job? Good, that's what I thought you said. I'll be sure to email your job posting to every dumb-ass moron I know. Hopefully you'll find some idiot to fill the position."

Hang in there M'Witty!

Um. yeah. What other response could there be.
Tell your friend good luck from me! Hope she finds a place that appreciates rising above mediocrity soon.

Wow, I've never heard that one before. I wish your friend luck. And if your friend was told that, that definitely isn't a place she wants to be at anyway. What a compliment to be over qualified. At least she won't be settling for less.

Directly out of college I applied and interviewed for a couple of admin positions, I was told this and it ticked me off to no end. If I WANT a job that is UNDER my abilities, why the heck should they care?

Wow, I'm sure they were aiming to compliment her, but wow. Just wow. I love the response you have, though!

Absolutely beautiful. I hate when I hear that response because I think it's just a way to excuse not paying people what they are worth.

Then again, I once took a job as a receptionist about died I was so bored.

good response to a crappy situation..though who would want to work for a dumb ass looking for an even dumber ass??!?!?!?!?!?!?

I love your response! SO much. That is the most annoying "reason" not to get a job.

Good luck to your pal, girlie.

Happy Weekend!!

She was actually told that she was TOO smart and over qualified!! I guess the good side to this is she won't be stuck working with a bunch of morons!!
