Retirement jobs Many seniors are finding that they need income after retirement. Others find that they just like the structure and productivity of work.
If you find that you want to look for a job a few months or years after retirement, the information on this page should be useful.
Finding a job is not always easy. When times are tough and the economy is shedding jobs you may be competing for a job with workers who are much younger than you are. But do not let that scare you off. When times are tough, companies still need to get work done. They may be hesitant to add full time jobs until an economic rebound has become solid but they are often willing to add a part time or temporary worker. That worker can be you.
There are some companies that have found 'older workers' to be good hires. because:
- Usually have a solid work ethic
- Have 'know how" and need less training and if they do need some updating or training, older
workers are usually ready and willing to learn.
- Have good social skills. They can be good for morale in the business AND they know how to treat customers so they leave smiling.
For these and other reasons, there are a number of companies that go out of their way to hire experienced (older) workers. They are a good choice for those looking for Retirement jobs.
( You will find a list of some of those companies at the end of this page.)
Your Resume. If you going job hunting - even for a part time, you want to bring your resume up to date and you want to revise it so it is targeted towards the job you want. A good resume is important for any job search. Do not 'blow it off' just because you are looking for part time work.
