As you are
probably aware, Linda and I have two major keyword based websites, www.retirement-jobs-online.com
We are always watching for interesting activity in the keywords
that are associated with these two sites.
It is a lot
easier to have Google send us emails each day telling us about activity
for these keywords than to have to search and try to determine what has
changed since the previous day. It
is just about impossible to do so.

Over the years,
more and more adult workers have been looking for retirement jobs, while
more and more employers are now in need of older workers for their
retirement jobs. In the yesteryears, the answer to retirement jobs used
to be a strict ‘no-no’ when the line between work and retirement was
clearly defined. In those days, most people worked until the age 65 or
so, saved up a substantial amount of money, and then headed to their
rocking chairs to relax and bide their time.
So, why are more
Baby Boomers seeking retirement jobs?
Today, whether or not they retire before the age of 65, or perhaps after the age, an increasing number of baby boomers are now choosing to make retirement jobs a steady part of their retirement years. According to reports by the National Council on Aging, it is estimated that almost one out of three Americans aged 65 or more has a retirement job and at least works part-time.
This trend is
more or less likely to increase as the years go by since more and more
baby boomers are preparing to retire from their regular jobs. According
to a survey:
· A staggering
85 percent of baby boomers have claimed to be working in retirement
· Only 10
percent said that they expected to work full-time in a retirement job.
· Roughly 60
percent said that they would rather work part-time either for fun or
· Nearly 15 percent of them said that they’d rather start their own retirement jobs.
Why do Baby
Boomers seek Retirement Jobs?
The reasons why
more and more baby boomers and adult workers are looking for retirement
jobs fall under the following four basic categories –
· Extra Income
– The chance of earning extra income is one of the main reasons why
most adult workers look for retirement jobs. By earning this extra money
at a part-time or full-time retirement job, retired workers can make
their pensions last for longer, afford more luxuries that they would
otherwise be forced to do without, and in many cases they can lower
their health-care costs by obtaining employer sponsored medical
· For Love of
the Job – Most adult workers look out for retirement jobs because they
love working. Especially for all those people whose jobs require them to
be a lot more creative and offers them more autonomy, like writers,
consultants, entrepreneurs and artists, work becomes a huge part of
their lives and is one of their biggest sources of personal
satisfaction, that having to do without a retirement job has very little
or absolutely no appeal.
· Chance to
Socialize – For all those people who are outgoing and fun-loving and
love to interact with other people throughout the day, retirement jobs
can provide you with a dynamic and vibrant social life and an in-built
network of potential friends and professional colleagues.
· Fear of being
Idle – Most people have so devoted themselves to work before their
retirement that they now prefer to keep on working at retirement jobs
for as long as possible to keep from being idle. What’s more, most
people like to delay that need to adjust that arises when there is a
change in lifestyle. Without a strong support system of family and
friends, or an entire plan when it comes to retirement activities they
would like to pursue, retirement jobs are by and large the safest
