Over-Qualified or Under-Skilled is a review of literature on what makes some of the problems in the job market.
The reason I read this:
I am wondering if PhDs are over-qualified and that is why they don’t get jobs (outside of academia)? Or is it because they either don’t have the skills needed or don’t know how to present the information that they have the skills needed?
It has some interesting points in it.
