Semi-Retired
IT Auditing - Information Technology Auditor . . I am semi-retired! I say semi-retired, because I am still "looking" for employment But it has to be "sweet", Real sweet! I have already paid all my dues Done my fair share of traveling However, I would like to finish my Auditing career on a high note, with a good job, something worthwhile, something meaningful So, if you come across something, please let me know Am I too young to retire? Actually no! I am a PRE -baby-boomer I was born in 1944, during World War II Most people consider "Baby Boomers" to "describe a person born between 1946 and 1964, following World War II" So officially, I am not a "Baby Boomer" I am a "PRE" - Baby Boomer! Admittedly, not by much, but I got here ahead of them However, quite figuratively (and literally), I am at the front of an enormous wave of people who are going to retire soon and leave the work force Get ready for it! It is coming! Baby Boomers are leaving the building! . . . . . . . .
