Resources for Retired Job Seekers
Although the term “retired job seeker” could be considered an oxymoron, it may prove to be the hottest and fastest growing segment of the global workforce over the coming years. As millions of baby boomers reach retirement age, many are looking for new careers during their golden years. Even though many of them could live comfortably off of accumulated pensions and other retirement plans, a large number of new retirees are anxious to rejoin the workforce. In some instances, they are looking to scale back the stress and the hours that they worked in their previous positions. And yet others are seeking to maintain or even increase their previous workload and responsibilities. Not every retiree is seeking to own and operate the perfect little bed and breakfast – at least not yet.
The staffing industry has been scrambling to cater to the needs of the emerging retired workforce and the latest site devoted to this segment is RetirementJobs.com. This site is well-organized and clearly designed with the user in mind. It’s simple to follow and is equally inviting to both savvy and inexperienced Internet users. The site cleverly avoids bombarding visitors with job posts and advertisements and instead offers an array of information, stories, and resources geared exclusively for retired job seekers. Overall, the site is very solid and definitely worth recommending to any retired job seeker. It will be very interesting to see how this site and others in this segment are marketed in the years to come.
