I'm on retirement but I want to work again. Any advise?

I hear people say I look good for my age. I ride my bike most of the time.

Update:

Well, my experience was assembly and delivery by personal vehicle even it long time ago. I enjoyed it.

Update 2:

Selling and buying things is not my strong skills.

Update 3:

I'm always on my feet during working hours.

    Looking good for your age and being able to ride your bicycle have nothing to do with whether you can work. What are your skills, and how would they fit into today's job market? If you have a particular skill that is needed, there should be an opening for you somewhere. If that's not your cup of tea, then you can always start your own business, if you're willing to work at it. If you do that, I would suggest that you incorporate yourself and get someone to help you with advertising. I'm 81, and I still work as a sole proprietor, having my own counseling office. I have to do continuing ed. every year to keep my license current, but I still enjoy working with people. Find something you enjoy doing and you're good at doing, and you'll find a niche.

    If you can stand 4-6 hours a day, Chick Fil A would be a great place. I did, but after two days my feet hurt from standing, I had to leave. Wages were $13 to start, other crew very wonderful and supportive, and 99% terrific company to work for. In the food preparations "back" area, the jobs are like assembly work, you do you little part for the great food that comes out.

    You will never know what you can or want to do unless you try it. I'm 80 and my wife and I, along with 2 other members, do estate sales for people who are selling or down sizing their homes.

    Not sure why you think your looks have to do with going back to work.

    We have two employees at our small store that are over 65. Walmart, Target, Department stores all hire 65+. Many retirees get a part time job.

    I relate to what you said. It was rewarding to be a producer in the workplace. Retirement can be a bit of a let down.

    As long as you aren't receiving social security, you should be able to get ack in the job market with no problems. That is, if you have skills the market is looking for. Or you might start your own business, like motorcycle repair? The aftermarket for trucks is also a very lucrative retail business these days.

      Your Social Security is taxed only after you have reached a certain amount in your total retirement for the year. I think it's somewhere around mid $30,000. Under that, there is no taxes on Social Security.
