I’m overeducated and can’t find a job.

I’m overeducated and can’t find a job.

  1. I’m an accountant in name only. It’s not in my heart.
  2. I feel that I am taking someone else’s oxygen and should just not try anymore.
  3. I was a teacher who was depressed from the pain of conforming to my boss’s unrealistic expectations of me.
  4. How can I increase my income as a minister?
  5. I’m over-educated but lacking in work experience.
  6. If someone dropped $10,000,000 in your lap tomorrow, would it change anything you do or how much you work?
