This woman, a Wellesley graduate with an M.A. from George Washington University, is so overqualified for the positions that interest her that she has taken a job as a nanny in the Washington, D.C. area because she cannot even get interviews anywhere else. In fact, the title of the article profiling her is "In a Down Economy, Overqualification is a Killer."
Her solution? Law school.
I'm not trying to mock this young woman, or belittle her. She has an impressive background and I am sure she is intelligent. But is the solution for being overqualified for positions that interest you to get another degree?
Luckily there is still time for her to change her mind. I sincerely hope that she either a) gets into Yale or b) realizes that more school is not always the answer, no matter how much she likes being a student.
