Retirees seek out post-retirement employment for a number of reasons. It could be because they need to supplement social security, to meet new people or to have something to do. We as humans are living longer and longer now — so spending age 65 to 85 watching TV all day will start to get boring.
No matter the reason, finding a job as a retiree will be a little different than your previous job hunting experiences. There are several factors to consider, such as marketing your unique skill set, battling ageism and brushing up on the job interviewing process. On the upside, you have a lifetime of experience to leverage and the opportunity to explore new paths!
