    I've just applied for a 3 month contract as a DBA/developer and I've been told I'm overqualified. What is that all about? You would have thought they'd want the best person they could find for their money. I was well within their price range.

    I'm lost for words!

    I suppose I better drop OCP off my CV and lie about my level of experience.

    WOW! Education can really work against you, where the heck is Julian now. This could be a whole new debate about "Degrees" education and lack therof.

    Tell em to hire me for a week Tim, then they'll be begging you to come work for them!!

    You're either too expensive, or the "lead" DBA felt you knew more then he did.

    Tim,

    The same happened to me a few years ago.

    But now the company with the job offer is bankrupt.

    (Just bad HR management.)

    So there is justice after all.

    Tycho
