I will be offering Finding Part Time Work in Retirement through Nashville Community Education where you will learn how to access your skills and then find and apply for part-time jobs! -Bonita
Want (or need) to work after retirement? The growth of the economy in Nashville has resulted in employment opportunities in fields from hospitality to logistics.
The New Retirement Generation
Baby boomers are ignoring the traditional retirement age of 65 and working in retirement. Thirty two percent of those aged 65 to 69 are now employed. In addition, nineteen percent of those aged 70 to 74 are still working. It is expected that these numbers will grow.
Three Reasons to Work After Retirement
Income, connection and a sense of purpose are three reasons for continuing to work.
Income to help pay the bills or pay for life's pleasures.
Social interaction that provides a sense of community.
A sense of purpose and a new self-identity.
If you are interested in working after retirement but want to learn more, the session will help you assess the skills you have to offer an employer. You will then determine which job postings match your skills.
If you need help with applications, the session will provide information on completing online application forms and short resumes along with a hands on experience applying for jobs.
