TheLadders.com has a nice, short article titled, "How to Handle 'You're Overqualified' in Interviews." If you have a doctorate degree and you're trying to transition into a brand new industry, you may be viewed as "overqualified" regardless of your age. The reality may be that you're actually "under-qualified" because you lack experience working in that specific industry.
