4/21    The previous Executive Assistant in my small start-up company had an
        MBA.  The current one has a Master's in Mass Communication.  Is the
        job market really that grim such that these over-qualifying people had
        to work office jobs?
        \_ How old were they? Were these entry-level jobs?
           \_ They are about 25-30.  I don't think you need a Master's degree
              to book air tickets and hotel rooms for the CEO.
              \_ MBA and master's degree doesn't automatically make you
                 overqualified.  Plus, it may not have been a question of
                 "had to".  A lot of my b-school classmates went on to do
                 seemingly irrational things for whatever peculiar reasons
                 they had.  -John
              \_ True, but having access to the CEO can be good for your
                 career. A know a lot of people with MBAs who didn't get
                 great jobs for a few years out of school, especially
                 if they were inexperienced and the MBA wasn't from Harvard.
