Call for Participants: Bridge Employment and Adjusting to Retirement Study

Call for Participants: Bridge Employment and Adjusting to Retirement Study

You are invited to participate in a study aimed at increasing understanding of bridge employment and retirement.

Bridge employment is defined as any paid work that a person engages in after s/he retires from her/his major career job/work. In order to participate in this research, you need to be formally retired from your major career job/work as well as currently engaged in any form of paid work.

This study involves an online survey that takes about 30 minutes to complete. You will be asked to answer questions related to your work, your experiences in retirement, your social relationships, and your physical and mental health.

Prize Draw

To thank you for taking part in this research, you will be placed into a prize draw where you have the chance to win a $20 Coles Group and Myer eGift card on completion of the survey.

At the end of this research (around October 2017), we will draw participants who complete our survey for the prizes, and we will contact the winners via email.

The study is being conducted by Wanpadee Kitchawengkul as part of the requirements for the Psychology Honours degree at the University of Queensland under the supervision of Dr. Ben Chun Pan Lam
