Jobs After Retirement

It’s a question most of us will ask when we are at or near retirement, What are we going to do after we retire? There are several answers but the two we talk about most are relax and enjoy our retirement or get a job to supplement our income. Relax and enjoy sounds the best but even that can become boring. If relaxing and enjoying becomes boring or we find relaxing and enjoying costs more than we anticipated then it may be necessary to get a job after retirement. The question is what job?

Our ability to get a job after retirement depends mostly on how much supplemental income we need and how picky we are. If you need a lot of money you should have continued working. If you are looking to supplement your income on a modest basis there are plenty of options.

The list of jobs available to earn a modest income is huge. To name a few. Big box stores, newspaper delivery, store greeters, helping out on a golf course, part time teaching, auto delivery for car dealerships, funeral home assistants and retail stores. So the work is out there. The question is do you want to commit to working for someone else, maybe punching a time clock and worst of all having that someone determine your work hours?

If you don’t like the scenario above, there is another option. That option is internet marketing. I know what you are thinking. I couldn’t ever do this. I don’t have those skills. What will people think if I tell them I am doing internet marketing. Before you talk yourself out of this option let’s look at the positives.

You will be your own boss, you will work your own hours, you determine how much you will make, you can work from your home, while spending the winter in Florida or anyplace you have internet access. That sounds better than working for someone else doesn’t it. The fact is thousands of retirees are doing just that. They aren’t at the beck and call of anyone except themselves (well maybe their spouse) and are living out their retirement on their own terms.

I’m not saying it won’t require some work because like anything worthwhile it requires hard work, determination and training. Assuming you have the determination to be your own boss that only leaves the training. There are hundreds of training programs available but not a lot of good ones. Go to the online forums on internet marketing. Find out what the internet world is saying about the different training organizations. Narrow you list down to two or three then check them out thoroughly.

Once you settle on a company follow the curriculum faithfully and you will be well on your way to being an internet marketer

Thanks for the comment Cynthia. I talk to a lot of seniors who have no plan to retire. They fear losing their hospitalization because they know they can't count on Medicare so they stay employed as long as they can.

John, True! I suspect a lot of people simply won't retire anymore. Building your own business takes time and effort over a period of years. And your work can get wiped out by various disasters! But what you know is inside you. And you are in charge, so there's no one to say you're too old to bother hiring or too far away or too sick or too whatever else:-) Internet marketing does have a number of skills. Focusing on a few at a time can help! blessings, Cynthia

During this economically hard time, many people just can't afford to retire, even if they want to. I personally feel that commitment to one's work keeps them alive and young. In the US, getting older is not easy. Medicare is forced on people. It's a poor health insurance because so many doctors are opting out of it now. I was a headhunter for a very short while. It was very revealing to me. Mind boggling. Corporations didn't want to look at people over 50. Sadly, the most qualified people were over 50, and some of the most gifted too. IM opens up new vistas. Shouldn't have to depend on an employer. I've been self employed most of my life. It's not always easy, but it's the best way to go.

Thanks for your response Rob. It's interesting the stories that are out there concerning this problem. I too am fortunate that I have options. However I am pursuing affiliate marketing for its flexibility.

Yes John, agree with the sentiments. Often retirement is not an option but a requirement and this is the difficult decision. You would rather go on working, but because the government has decided that the only way to improve unemployment is by forcing the older experienced people to retire, is the problem. World unemployment that is on the increase is killing a lot of the job opportunities of retirees. Internet marketing is costly for some with costly connections, what should they do? It is a difficult decision and a traumatic one for many. Great article I enjoyed it, specially as I was forced to retire, but have options that I'm now following. Others I know are really struggling.
