Working in retirement is quickly becoming one of the fastest growing career trends, considering that a 1998 AARP survey of over 2,000 adults age 33-52 found that 80% say they plan to work at least part-time during retirement. The last thing retirees are looking for is the same thing they've been doing all their lives. They are looking for work situations that are mentally and emotionally rewarding. Don't Retire, REWIRE will help readers to not only define what kind of work is best suited for their passions and interests, but guide them through the process of obtaining such work-whether it's a part time job, volunteer work, or a second career. In addition to the practical how-to content, this book combines the stories and lessons of real-life retirees with original research based on more than 300 original interviews.
