Survey: 74% of Workers Are Passive Job Seekers Ready to Consider a Move

A recent survey by Harris Interactive/Plateau Systems furthers the case for proactive sourcing given the significant result that while "most people are generally satisified with their current job," 74% would move if the right opportunity presented.

Should You Hire an Overqualified Candidate? - Harvard Business Review

While this article was written with the current American experience in mind; the point of the article crosses geographical borders. The "overqualified" candidate can more often than not be a harsh presumption - closer scrutiny of those 'qualifications,' getting to know the employee in question, and thinking broader than just the organisation and the job requirements can lead to a far more mutually beneficial agreement.
