Back to Work: Best Jobs for Older Workers to Earn Supplemental Income

Filed under: Older Workers — Larry @ 9:23 pm

An interesting article earlier this year on ABC news (http://abcnews.go.com/Business/JobClub/best-jobs-retirees-supplement-income/story?id=12798954) discusses some of the opportunities available for retirees and older workers to supplement their income.

Consulting

– Start by offering your part-time help to your former employer.

– Reach out to contacts you made during your years in the business, as well as competitors in the same industry.

– Register with temporary agencies.

Customer Service

Home Depot and CVS are just two national chains that actively court retirees for part-time work.

Caregiving

Retirees have more in common with elderly clients, such as life experiences and frames of reference, which can make companionship an easier fit.

Further details and some useful links to assist you in your search are included in the article.
