Applaud yourself, that is no small feat! During that half a century you developed your talents and skills through effort and experience.
As of this moment, you have arrived at the point where you are the sum total of all you have lived through.
You, and all other senior citizens, are now being recognized as an actual national resource, and as such, you have great value.
I took you around the garden path to arrive at this point to emphasize that your best years are not behind you.
Those years are now spread out right in front of your eyes!
Having said all of this, you are now faced with the question, what type of work do you want for yourself?

Sadly, too many seniors jump into the very first job that is offered to them.
Maybe they are told by a friend that some local business is looking for someone to do something or other. Or maybe they see an employee wanted sign in the window of a shop at the mall.
This doesn't mean that you should ignore those as work for seniors possibilities. What it means is that you should not under sell yourself and your value.
Take out a piece of blank paper and write across the top the words, I want this job! Now take your time and really give the answers some thought. You know your capabilities better than anyone else.
Here are some decisions you should make. What specific kind of work do I want to do? What type of business do I want to work in?
Go so far as to name the individual business you want to work for. Research even farther and see if you can't find out the name of the owner or manager.
Define the hours and shift you want. Do you want to work full time or part time? You'd be surprised how flexible employers can be about scheduling.
Don't neglect writing down the wages you want and expect. Make sure you understand how much, and how often you will be paid.
Once you have down in black and white just exactly what specific work for seniors you want, put the paper to one side.
Make out a second list of the specific businesses you want to target, by name. They may not even be advertising for help, ignore that.
Many businesses that aren't advertising work for seniors, may be considering doing so. By approaching them at this moment you should have little, or no competition.
You know what job you want, what business you want to work for, what hours you want and what wages you expect. With persistence and confidence in the value you will bring to the employer, go for it.
