“I remember thinking that it would be the same as those other career/resume websites. Believe it or not, I was contacted within two business days with a list of employers looking for seasonal help. I was asked on an interview the same day I applied, I went for an interview and three days later, I was offered a part-time seasonal position with a major department store; and doing what I enjoy. When filling out the application for employment, in the section for how did you find out about us...I was proud to write I found out about the job from retirementjobs.com via AARP. I have enjoyed the new job and have been receiving many compliments from my customers. Thanks … for brightening up my retirement future.”

“You are a Godsend - what a super idea -- someone catering to those of us who have early retired but don't really want to retire totally. Brilliant concept! I have recently retired from education after a rewarding 36 years but I am, by no means, ready to stop working! I want to give back but I also want to be paid for my knowledge & skills. I am passing your website on to all my colleagues who have recently retired from education -- we are a growing number -- as you well know (& most of us are under 60 & very much wanting to continue in the work force)! Thanks so much for providing us with a resource to do just that. It is great to feel valued.”
