Just so you know, I had two interviews in Manhattan today, both with interviewers who had digital copies of my resume, and both of them told me in no uncertain terms that I was over-qualified. What most pisses me off about this is that if they had my resumes and had read them, thus determining my alleged over-qualification beforehand, then why did they bother to have me come in and meet with them at all? I'm guessing they wanted to size me up in person, hear me talk and explain my work history and see if what was listed on my resume was bullshit. I'm guessing that when they saw my stated work experience in publishing was for real and not the expected resume cosmetic surgery, they probably realized I had been around the block and was not going to put up with the same crap that a newbie would. Whatever the case, I think it was shitty of them to call me in and waste my time and get my hopes up.
I've been kind of down and out of sorts over my work situation lately anyway, but this has thrown me into a major funk. I'll get over it in a day or two, but for now I just want to concentrate on moving forward and once more getting centered. That said, I wish I had a mook jong and a bucket of ice for my hands afterward.
