The Retired Intern

After a long and fruitful career, it might seem unimaginable to go back to the bottom of the workplace food chain—after all, you’ve more than earned your senority! Still, some in their retirement years are discovering that an internship can be quite fulfilling and uncover new passions.

This could be the dream job that you never pursued! As an experienced worker, you have skills and knowledge that can benefit an organization in countless ways—but you’ll have to do a good job of convincing your boss that you’re not overqualified and are really willing to do the grunt work associated with most internships. You may try volunteering first, and then working with an organization to find the role that suits you best.

Think about the things you love to do or would love to try now that you have the time. The world is wide open, and anything can happen! [The New York Times]
