Feeling overqualified may trigger stress in workers
Stress can be triggered due to a host of factors. Unfortunately, professional dissatisfaction is one of the biggest reasons for most young professionals to succumb and give in to acute stress.

Experts at the Florida Atlantic University in America have found that employees who feel overqualified for their current job are likely to feel dissatisfied with their work and feel stressed. It was also found that as people age their sense of feeling overqualified also diminishes gradually.

Occupational stress is actually a thing of this world, which means that the place one works in is not conducive for a person’s professional or emotional growth, thereby triggering stressful events in an employee’s routine. Inability to cope with occupational demands or failure to deliver as expected may also push people to feel stressed and even feel depressed. 

Managerial bullying, role conflict, lack of autonomy or barriers in career development may also trigger stress in employees. While one of the best ways to mitigate the problem is by taking it up with your reporting manager, working on your attention and ability to focus, and devising ways to delegate work and manage your time better may also help deal with extra workload and pressure. Take small breaks from work to feel refreshed by talking to a colleague, according to a media report.
