Top Cities for Finding Jobs after Retirement Age

With the recent recession, more people are considering working longer. However, finding a new job or career after 50 can be very challenging. America's Silver- Collar Capitals
by Joshua Zumbrun of Forbes, reports on 10 cities where the unemployment rate for retirement age works are low. In fact, the top city of Anchorage, Alaska had an retirement-age unemployment rate of 0%, meaning everyone that wanted a job could get one. Here's the list from the article.
  1. Anchorage, Alaska

  2. Washington, D.C.

  3. Southern Connecticut

  4. Lincoln, Nebraska

  5. Lexington, Kentucky

  6. Houston, Texas

  7. Des Moines, Iowa

  8. Raleigh, North Carolina

  9. Dallas - Fort Worth, Texas

  10. Tallahassee, Florida

Personally, we do not plan to move any of these location for a post retirement-age job. However, I was pleasantly surprised to find a high proportion of desirable locations in the top ten list. For those already living in these areas, finding a job as after retirement age should be less of a challenge.
