The march to retirement just might be the best time to breathe some new life into your career.
Close to 1 in 5 individuals age 65 and over continues to punch the clock every day, according to the Pew Research Center. Meanwhile, more than half of Americans ages 50 to 64 are working and not retired, according to data from the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research.
Indeed, older employees may continue working because they need to strengthen their finances.
Recent data from the Employee Benefit Research Institute showed that nearly 80 percent of workers say that they'd like to continue working after retirement.
