The advantages of advancing years.

The advantages of advancing years.

 Show Interest
Many job seekers, as their years advance, become ever more concerned about their age and fear this will have a negative impact on their interview chances.

Age may well be in the mind of the interviewer, but if these thoughts affect you, remember what Hamlet says in Shakespeare's classic play, “There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so."

If you think your age is a problem, it will be. Think instead what age gives you. Here are just seven advantages you have over so-called 'youngsters':

1 more experience,
2 greater knowledge,
3 balanced judgement,
4 better transferable skills,
5 a deeper level of wisdom,
6 superior critical thinking ability,
7 heightened emotional intelligence.

Focus on these and all the disadvantages fade away!
