    I'll be eligible to retire in six months but I'm too young to quit working. How far in advance should I send out my resume?

    Well, apparently pasting links correctly is not one of mine.

    go search for job number 60368 at stanfordcareers.stanford.edu.

    Well, that was easy. I sent my resume to three companies on 7/24, got a call from one about 10 minutes later and tentatively start on 3/1.

    Nice! I lost my long term job on 2010, spent two years getting a degree and finally returned to work earlier this year. Not really a happy ending, considering the 30% pay cut, but could have ended worse. I'm thinking early retirement at this point, maybe in about 18 months. I'll be close to 59 then and the mortgage will be paid. Got to look at numbers a bit closer yet before I decide. Like you, I'll be looking into something part time then. Good luck!

    That looks like real work. I doubt if I'd last a day.

    Yeah, I just figured it out. Didn't know if it was a website I hadn't heard of or what.

    Hmm...I just got told I will be laid off my job due to lack of work to do. Maybe just temporarily.
    I'm not in a panic. Have money in the bank, been keeping the budget lean for a long time.
    Gotta go see how to get unemployment benefits in this state (CO).

    Looks like I'll be riding my bike more for a while.

    Good luck in job hunting, this is that rainy day you've been saving for.

    Yep. It's been two weeks now since I left the job. I've been tremendously enjoying my time off. My UI payments should begin soon.
    I'm not planning on working again for at least a few months.
