The problem I have is that everyone I know, and the people they know are retired. Why? Because I was also. I have over 30 years in Technical Writing and Training/Development in the high technology environment. I decided to go back to work, and started a Customer Service job, only to find that the work environment was highly unprofessional, where customers complained about the background noise. I'm willing to work for less, will work more diligently and be more productive than most employees, but due to my age (78) nobody will consider me even though I'd be an extremely valuable and cost effective employee. I require no benefits.

Be sure to use all your social networks for creating connections. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. Step outside your bubble and meet new people. Networking and learning through each connection you make.
