The best retirement jobs are those in which you are surrounded by your passion. Find the best business to start for entrepreneurs or your next corporate position. You decide.

For Traditional Employment:

If you are looking for more traditional employment, then here are a few things that you may want to consider.

  1. Focus on your passion - Look for those areas that you really enjoy. It can be the use of your skills in a certain area. It can be talent or strong interest that you have. It can be a desire to do good and help others. Focus.

    To help you figure out what drives you and what it takes to make you happy, look at the personality tests that are available on our self examination section. Working in an area that your really enjoy can lead to the best retirement jobs.

  2. MORE AVAILABLE! Other sections on this site that addresses Jobs for Income are:

  3. Don't move - There is a better chance of finding employment with a company near in or near your current city than there is at another location. Companies are less likely to pay for moving expenses when there is a supply of workers nearby.
  4. Consider working on a temporary basis - Many companies prefer to hire temps to perform a number of functions within their organizations. Since there is usually no long term commitment by the employers, they are more likely to hire more temps.

  6. Evaluate your role as a Consultant - If you have gained expertise over the years, you can be valuable resource for many organizations. Make contacts and present yourself as the expert to call on. Matter of fact, you can put your shingle out. Find a good business plan development package and work through it. Set your goals and develop a strategy.

    One of the next steps is key. That is to create a website for your consultancy business. Hire the site development out to an eager helper or create it yourself using SBI. It takes work to get your names and skills out in front of those that need it. Take the time, you will be glad you did. You can see how others and done just that and you can learn How to Become an Entrepreneur.

  7. There are many ways to be a consultant. One of the more recent is to demonstrate your skills and knowledge to others online by providing answers to questions that individuals have on many, varied subjects. If you could demonstrate your expertise in German, Plumbing, Cat Veterinary, Autism, Motorcycles, and many other categories, you could earn income and become an expert on this trusted answer website. For me, this is one of the best retirement jobs.

    ~ John Keats

  8. Be flexible - This could mean both in the time spent on the job and the locations. If you are willing to adjust your hours and job sites, you might find more opportunities.
  9. Look for the Boom - Several reports are beginning to be released indicating that there will be a shortage of workers in the coming years. One such report is After the Recovery: Help Needed by Barry Bluestone and Mark Melnik for the Kitty and Michael Dukakis Center for Urban and Regional Policy at Northeastern University in Boston. They state that there will be a shortage of 5.0 - 5.7 million workers for potential jobs by 2018. More on this subject is presented on our Jobs After Retirement page.
