are you overqualified? Articulate why you are interested

Too many times Bond's recruiters and hiring managers receive resumes (with no apparent explanation) that are so wholly overqualified for a position that they will not bother to consider you. If you are changing industries or have fallen off a growth path or a looking for something different, make sure you articulate that in your resume. Are you open to working at a lower salary than your resume would suggest? Maybe you have a good reason for that - Don't just assume hiring managers are going to want to spend time calling you to figure it out. If you post your resume to a job board or submit it to a company, make sure it tells your story accurately.
