Should the Govt create an agency to help retirees find jobs?

THERE are many retirees here who now need to seek either part-time or full-time work to meet their current or future financial needs. I was forced by circumstances to retire after a failed venture in China. I am 62 now and it has struck me that I need some form of work to bolster my self-confidence and keep my mind and body agile and healthy. I searched the Net and in the classified sections of local newspapers to locate an organisation or agency that caters to the job needs of seniors, but could not find any. The Government has been encouraging seniors to upgrade their skills and continue working as long as they are sound in body and mind. I urge the authorities to set up an agency where seniors can register details of their experience and skills so they can be matched against jobs that fall vacant in various institutions and companies.
