The answer to your doubt is actually not complicated. Look at the real world. There are similar position and job functions everywhere in the world, but they are classified into different ranks. For example, there are junior engineer, senior engineer, staff engineer and principle engineer. So the more experienced you are, the higher your ranking and pay. It's also base on supply and demand mechanism. Sometimes, a company might be looking for people to fill up certain position desparately, so they will just hire you although you have less experience in the related field. But sometimes, when job seeker are far more than the vacancy in the labour market, you will still get an inferior job even if you are over-qulified for that job. Hope this could clear your doubts.
