Could someone explain to me what that term means and why it is used so much?
If you can answer that, then take a swing at these followups too:
Are you afraid that the person is going to do too good of a job for you?
You would be more than happy to buy your capital equipment at say, 50% off, why do you such a problem doing that with your emloyees?
Even if the "overqualified" employee leaves in 6 months or a year, will you seriously be any worse off? Seriously. You will have had an excellent employee doing a great job for at a pay level that you will never see again. How can that set you behind even if you have to interview new candidates again. If you are really good at identifying perfect candidates (you aren't - nobody is), then you will be just fine. If you are lousy at identifying perfect candidates (you are - everybody is) then you will still be 6+ months to the good.
The word should be banned from the English language (all languages for that matter, assuming that other languages are as bad as English in this regards.)
