I retired after a long career as an executive in operations five years ago. I am going crazy not having anything to do! We have recently learned that we will be raising our grandchildren, which of course is going to be costing us much more on a monthly basis than we had anticipated when I retired. Please help me get out of the house and make some money!
Well, for starters I think it is wonderful that you are taking care of your grandchildren, as they say, it takes a village. I think that you should go about your job search with the same plan as anyone else…crafting a solid resume, and then check out ExecuNet for roles that appeal to you. On ExecuNet you can also add your resume to their database, and you can set up alerts to be notified when jobs that may be of interest to you pop up. Reach out to former colleagues, and see if anyone has a need for someone with your background. Become familiar with LinkedIn, and start to follow companies that are of interest to you, as well as their management team. Don’t ignore the second part. You want to study the players too. You also want to reach out to recruiters that focus on operations roles or the industry that you gained the bulk of your experience in, and send them your resume and ask to be alerted to any potential matches. Reach out to your former colleagues and let them know you’re looking to work again.
