(NAPSA) - There's good news for older adults trying to enter the workforce. There's a new brochure designed to help them get a job.

Even though older applicants often bring experience, knowledge and a strong work ethic to a job, many still find it difficult to find employment. For those returning to the workforce or entering the workforce for the first time, the task can be even more challenging.

The new brochure, "Employment Options: Tips for the Older Job Seeker," suggests that older applicants can relate their life experiences as a parent or volunteer or their hobbies to the skills required for a job.

The brochure-prepared by the Eldercare Locator and Senior Service America, Inc.-shares tips on how to find hidden job leads, successfully submit a job application and prepare for an interview.

To request the new brochure, "Employment Options: Tips for the Older Job Seeker," contact the Eldercare Locator at 1-800-677-1116 or The Eldercare Locator is a free service of the U.S. Administration on Aging and is administered by the National Association of Area Agencies on Aging (n4a).
