I was asked to dumb my CV down as I have too many qualifications to be employed.

I am a well qualified (I have four degrees), articulate and self confident woman who is unemployable. I also have three children and apparently you can't have both a family life and a career. I have applied for lots of part time jobs in my local area but even if I get an interview they tend to say that - this is not the job for me, and that I will get bored. Even an adviser at the job centre suggested that I lie on my CV and lose some of my qualifications as they made me unemployable. Why do I have to dumb myself down to get work???
