I have a friend who was a British Naval Supply Officer for 10 years and then got an MBA at a world-ranked university. He's taken a few years off to be a stay-at-home-dad while he Naval Officer wife was on sea duty. Now, it seems no one wants to touch him with a 10 foot pole! He's been job-hunting for 8 months with no interviews... NOTHING. He felt that Norfolk Southern would be just the place for him, but they won't even look at his applications. Is he overqualifed? Is it the citizenship issue? (He's a legal resident (i.e. has Green card)).
