Older worker seminar in Kennewick

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.-- Columbia Basin WorkSource had a seminar Thursday to help older workers overcome barriers.

The people who attended the seminar got much of the same advice anyone looking for a job would get. 

Be prepared for an interview by researching the company and interviewer, and show up five minutes early. 

But most of the seminar focused on the specific difficulties facing older workers. 

"Some of those problems one of the main ones is a lot of times employers will say you're over qualified.  We look at that and how to get around those barriers," says Keith Ertell with WorkSource Business Services.
