Secondly, I'm going to re-work the question to read:
I have years of experience. How do I sell myself to people with less experience without seeming overqualified?
There are very specific strategies I use to coach my clients in this situation. In fact, I like to address every job opportunity with them separately. So, for the sake of the readers, I'll give you some general guidelines:
1. Imagine why the person hiring you would object to your experience.
2. Create a positive counter conversation for any objection you imagine. In other words, show the person how your experience makes you an asset to them in a way they never considered.
3. Re-consider how much you choose to share about your experience if it really is hindering you.
