    The bat in his bedroom window thread was posted April 2008. It's an old thread that has been revived.

    I swapped some fabric with him for patterns. He responded to my PM the other day.

    It's such a tough job market right now. How he finds something. My thoughts and prayers are with him.

    Awww thanks you guys. It is nice to have people thinking about me. I have just been so busy trying to find a job and also taking the online classes.

    The job hunting has been an everyday thing. I go out looking and applying at places that I think I am qualified to do. I actually got told a few days ago that I was overqualified for one job. I was like , what? I have never heard of that before. Has anyone else heard that before?

    But...today I got an email from one of the places I applied to about two weeks ago and they have called me in for a second interview on Thursday so we will see how that goes. It is a part time job tutoring kids.

    Oh plus I turned 33 this past Sunday. :)

    My fingers and toes are crossed for you, Henry!
    I was told once that I was over-qualified - I sputtered and said, 'Yes, but if you hire me, I will have 1/3 the commute!' They didn't hire me. So you know what NOT to say - - -

    What exactly does that mean, overqualified? I figured that was a good thing because they would know you would work very hard at the job. I am so confused by that.

    Awe, Happy Birthday Henry!!!!! :) :) :)

    Over-qualified means this. They don't want someone that is overqualified, because, that means the person is taking a job less than their potential and prob lower pay too, and so they think the person will take the job just because they are desperate for a job, but as soon as a better offer comes along, that they have credentials to do, and is better pay, they will leave this job. That's what i think they think. But, you have a second interview coming up, a second interview is always a good sign, hope it goes good :) :) :)

    Yep - sometimes you have to play your self down - because if they think you are over qualified they wont employ you because they think you will get bored.
