Catch 22

We just visited CC near Poitiers.

As I noted previously, she has 2 Masters Degrees in Biology, with various "mentions", which might be imagined as an advantage when applying for relevant biology-type jobs.
But seemingly not.
There are suggestions she is over-qualified &/or lacking experience, so she can't get a job, to get the experience, to get a job…
Since it is difficult to unaward a Masters Degree, even in France, maybe the only answer will be to lie on her CV.
Invent a couple of years idle or in prison to account for the time lost at University.

In the meantime, she is looking after state-owned goats & her career plans include grape harvesting.
Maybe that will count as experience?
At least it opens the door to unemployment pay.

Things were much simpler in my day.
