Career Hacks for Pre-Retirement Workers 

HomeLifestyleCareer Hacks for Pre-Retirement Workers 

Hey there, seasoned career veterans! Are you tired of hearing about “millennial hacks” and “Gen Z tricks” in the workplace? Well, fear not, because we have some career hacks tailor-made for vibrant adults.

First off, let us talk about virtual office politics. While the young and the restless might be busy Instagramming their lunches, you can use your years of experience to navigate water cooler and cubicle conversations with finesse. Remember, you have seen more drama than Susan Lucci, the acclaimed star of the soap opera, General Hospital, so use it to your advantage!

Next up, technology. Sure, Snapchat filters might be a mystery to you, but who needs them when you have Excel spreadsheets and Microsoft Office Suite down to an art? Embrace your mastery of the digital realm and become the office wizard everyone turns to for tech support.

Networking is crucial but forget awkward Eventbrite mixers and forced small talk. Instead, leverage your vast network of Linkedin and Facebook friends, family, and former colleagues. You have spent a lifetime building relationships – now is the time to cash in on those social chips!

And let us not forget about work-life balance. While teammates twenty years younger might be burning the midnight oil, you know the value of a good night’s sleep. So go ahead, shut down your home office at a reasonable hour and enjoy some well-deserved downtime. Besides, you will be up at 4:30 am the next morning anyway. Why not get your exercise on by going for a walk on Atlantic Beach, the Acosta or Main Street bridges, in your community, or by hitting the YMCA or Planet Fitness for a hard thirty minutes?

So, there you have it. Embrace your experience, wield it like a seasoned Jaguars practice football and show the up-and-coming whippersnappers that age ain’t nothing but a number!
