Jeff,
Have you thought about driving for a ride-share company? You can make great money and meet new people in your hometown.

Hi @jbelvisgrace  and welcome to the online community!

 

Oh I think it's great fun to start a new phase in your career! I've done everything from cover riots for TV news to organic farmer. 🙂

 

I suggest you check into Chipotle Mexican Grill. You can start at the bottom (min wage) and quickly work your way up the ladder. The trick to getting hired there is to exude the 13 attributes listed in this article: https://careers-blog.chipotle.com/13-characteristics/

 

Your retail experience would be a plus, I think.

 

Best wishes for a wonderfully exciting new year!
