There is no anything like being overqualified because no matter how your resume or your education qualification may be good an employer can not tell you that you are over qualified but he will tells you that the job opportunity that you applied for does not require such qualifications.

If you are overqualified that means the probability of you getting the dream job is very high since many companies and organisations prefer employing competent and qualified candidates who can performed their respective duties well .

Some emplyers may have the nerve to tell you if they just don't want to give you an opportunity. There are instances where i have seen people being told they're over qaulified for the position. This could mean you are either applying for a job that is way beyond your level of education and they feel like they would not be doing you justice by giving you that job, in other words the pay may not go well with your qualification it could be lower than what you deserve.
