OVERQUALIFIED: WHAT DOES IT REALLY MEAN?

“You have too much going on.”


a full résumé

Ever take a long look at your resume and thought to yourself, “I might be overqualified for the job I am seeking to attain. Some people don’t have a job at all, but are seeking employment. They are individuals that are willing to take the gig to hold them over until they find something else. Only problem with that is the employer is looking for someone with entry skills. I used to always think it was for reasons like the organization does not want to pay you what you are worth. And to a degree, there is reality there. But if you are applying for a job that you need and not really one that benefits your qualifications, then it could prove to hurt you once you do get that job that matches your qualifications.

don’t include everything

Whenever you decide to put together a resume, you need to understand something. You should not include everything you do. Because people may look at it, and think twice. You need a job, then you should put what is needed, but then you should also keep in mind that if there is too much it could hurt you. So just keep it in mind when you are compiling information.

throwing your hands up

When you are working a job where you are overqualified, then what you’re dealing with is dissatisfaction. Because the job will not only be a lack of a challenge, you’re also going to have no real ability to climb. Jobs where you can not really climb, you will start to resent it. Then you will throw your hands up and not have much motivation to do much of anything. So sometimes in need of a job, you will have to pass to keep from hating your job later. You will have a check, but resent the move.

I am from Racine, Wisconsin where I was raised until I graduated high school back in the year 2006. That entire time growing up in my mother's house, I was a student athlete. My goal was to embark on a general business career or athletics. But injuries through sports stopped a sports path, so I decided upon business with a focus in marketing. While attending undergraduate school at University of Wisconsin-Parkside, I began to write screenplays in my senior year. At first it was for fun, but I quickly learned writing allow me to transfer negative energy into characters I created. This led to a decrease in depressing mood swings, which in turn boosted my quality of life. After undergraduate school in May of 2011, I move to New York City for graduate school. While pursuing my MBA, I continued to write screenplays, but always wanted to write novels as well. I finished graduate school back in the year 2014, but wrote screenplays until I began thinking of my first short film, first First Day Fears. While finishing my fifth feature length screenplay, I started to write my first novel this year. So far, I have finished my first short film and working on my next one (Freedomless Speech), and recently self published my first novel (The Boy Who Could Talk To God) and short stories book (Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Volume 1). My feature length screenplays have been put on temporary hold to finish my short films and books, but I am making good progress on my sixth feature length screenplay. With year 2017 ending, I am currently writing my novel Precinct 86 and Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Vol. 2. I have started teaching myself photography and will pursuing that by summer of 2018, along with my videography, podcast later on, and more research for my documentary.
