Can a person be hurt by too much education? My example: In high School I went to Voc-Tec for Ornamental Horticulture and I worked 3 years at a large greenhouse. I left on good terms . I was getting married and moving away, but they gave me a nice letter of recommendation. Then I ran into the wall as far as jobs in my new area. I tried to get a job at a greenhouse. I filled out the application and didn't hear anything. A week later I called them to follow up,and they said I was over qualified and they just wanted to have someone to water the plants do odd jobs around the greenhouse. I told them I would be happy to do that kind of work and just wanted to get whatever pay they gave for that kind of work. So I was thinking that now that a few years have past should I dumb down what I know when I apply. On a side note...I went there to buy plants and talked to the girl that did get hired there. She said she knew nothing about plants and couldn't answer a simple question about a new plants they had for sale. ( I didn't ask, she just blurt it out!) So my question is can you know too much?
