A retirement job has many definitions. Some say a full or part time job from an age friendly employer. Then there is any job to supplement your retirement income. Some say seasonal jobs or even volunteering jobs. Also a job with flexible hours and benefits could be a good retirement job.
One of the best books I have read on the subject is The Power Years by Ken Dychtwald where he talks about rediscovering retirement jobs by job sharing, starting new careers in something you have a passion for, jobs for fulfillment not need and cycling in and out of the workplace.
