Thank you Angela. BTW - when I was laid off in 2010 I was able to get a job with an elementary school. Schools are a great place for older workers. I really enjoyed it.

Thanks for the suggestion? Hugs, Angela

Hi Angela,

I agree with you wholeheartedly and support you in your pursuit of employment.  I live in a senior retirement community in Florida and know many retirees who work.   I have had health setbacks but hope to regain my strength and return to being a productive member of society.  FYI - medical insurance is a big reason so many seniors work.  My medical plan is expensive and is going up another $40 a month next year.  I have a $7,000 deductible which means I pay out-of-pocket for every medical procedure except yearly exams.  It is outrageous.  Something to consider carefully. 

 


I am sending healing thoughts your way for a SPEEDY recovery!!!! Hugs, Angela

If you are still working, how did you find your job?

Hello All:

 

If you are still working, how did you find your job?

 

I am so ready to get out of retail at age 61 and trying big time to figure out the best way to find another job. I do plan on getting my social security next year, but would like to ideally continue to work until I can't.

 

I feel personally that having a reason to get out of bed and leave home helps to keep us young and healthy as we age. Too many of us are dying early from lonliness or mental or physical issues.

 

I have been using the famous online job sites but feel I am wasting my time. I have also looked into sites geared to seniors. Again, nothing.

 

Looking forward to hearing from you!!!

 

Hugs,

Angela
