+ - Portuguese Government wants to put its data in the cloud

Politicians are already asking the Minister of State Miguel Relvas about this and Freitas do Amaral is even saying he is perpelxed at the possibility. The Minister of Defense already stated that this study does not include Defense data, classified or otherwise. Meanwhile, the National Commission of Data Protection (CNPD, Comissão Nacional de Protecção de Dados, in Portuguese) is already analyzing the matter."

I find it "funny" being dismissed for a job on the basis of overqualifications... IMHO there's no such thing as overqualifications. This excuse is just a reason for companies not hiring someone.
In my country (Portugal) this is a most frequent excuse for not hiring. The other excuse is aging. It's true that after 35 it is more difficult to get a new job. My personal experience says so... I'm 37 and I've been unemployed for the last 4 months. Fortunately I got a job in a company that I worked for in the past, because the person in charge knew me very well and did not need any job interview to know me better...
