Your resume has a job to do. Its job is to get the phone
ringing. Is your phone ringing?
Are employers you want to work for calling you? Being classified as overqualified, under-qualified, or not qualified all result from a resume containing too much, not enough, or the wrong information. Obviously no one initially considers themselves anything but fully qualified when submitting the resume, but the information somehow conveyed the wrong message.
The burden is on you to convey your message in a manner that presents you precisely as you intended. The person reading your resume should not have to decode the resume. To ask "Why did they think I am overqualified?" shows one is holding the employer accountable to decipher the information one included on one's resume.
