    I reentered the labor market after the age of 65. I had only been working seasonal/part-time work for approximately four years. My new job has energized me. I am excited to be learning new work skills, gaining fresh industry knowledge, and applying life long learned skills in a new generational environment. I have taken a class to upgrade skills and knowledge. I am also grateful to be learning new technology skills and working around young people half my age or much younger. I have had to learn to express myself differently and adapt new communication methods to relate and understand the ‘younger’ worker. it’s so refreshing.
