Nope. When I retired, I retired.

I have not done anything with LinkedIn, but folks suggestions sound pretty inspiring. Currently I get emails and maybe a weekly phone call for a job, all of which I ignore.
Really I had no idea what to do with it, as it is still a good way for old previous work buddies to look me up, which has happened.
Think I'll label myself as Consultant, after I turn off the notification things.

One other thought on LinkedIn: I'm finding it delightful to be able to say what I want in comments on articles. There's a lot of good writing on things companies do wrong ("Ten things not to say when you're firing someone") or that describe ideal situations that never exist in real companies, and now I can comment. I'm tactful, give factual examples but with no names, but if I offend someone, well, they're never going to see my resume so I don't care.

I was always a light user of Linkedin. When I ER'd I immediately added "retired" to my title. In the past couple of years I've put on a number of science classes for seniors and updated my Linkedin title to "Science Educator".

I mostly stayed on LI to potentially help former employees that I thought might get laid off in that first couple of years after I left due to some big changes in the organizations. Fortunately they all stay gainfully employed.

Happy, Wild, and Free
