I would suggest NOT looking for a traditional job. Age discrimination is rampant.  Also, if you seek an unskilled job, those are in decreasing supply. (e.g. MacDonalds finally figured out that you don't need a human to ask if you want cheese with that - a simple kiosk will do).

 

You have many other ways to earn income that you control.  There is a good post here: https://www.retirementincome.net/supplemental-retirement-income/stop-looking-for-a-job/
