Retirement can be a new beginning for you to explore all the interests you shelved for the past several decades. The biggest key is that you don’t have to just sit at home and watch TV, yell at the neighborhood kids who trample your petunias, and jaw with your buddies about “being regular.” Retirement can mean a whole new career, whether you simply want to, or because you need to.
As retirement portfolios have taken it on the chin and lifespans have increased, the nature of retirement is changing — more retirees are healthy enough to work and want or in some cases, financially need to continue working. There are several reasons for continuing to work part-time even after they’ve retired from their full-time job:
Workers who have officially retired can often choose jobs based on what they really want to do, instead of what they need to do to meet their financial responsibilities. This freedom of choice opens doors to many career opportunities, both within and beyond your original occupation and/or employer.

Choosing a new career can boost your mental and physical health and lend purpose to retirement years. When looking for a new career that might appeal to you, consider the following guidelines:
Above all – Seek out training: Don’t be afraid to take college courses or career training to prepare for a new career.
