Many seniors live on a fixed budget and need part-time employment to help supplement their income while others just enjoy the feeling of being productive in the working world. Either way, there are a variety of jobs available that will fit a retiree’s life style. Here are a few suggestions from the experienced caregivers in Boca Raton.
Retail businesses are always looking for part-time workers, especially during the busy months such as November and December. Getting hired on during the holidays is the first step to a more permanent part-time position year round.
2. Sports Teams
Employment at a sports stadium is rewarding in so many ways. There are many different positions available ranging from office work to ushering. These positions put seniors in a fun environment while providing that much needed extra income.
3. Customer Service
Customer service is a good fit for older adults who want to work part-time. Many of these jobs offer flexible hours and are a great way for them to interact with people while picking up a paycheck.
4. Tutoring or Teaching
Seniors often teach classes based on their hobbies or interests. This is a great opportunity for them to share their vast knowledge with people who are willing to learn from an expert.
There is always a need for researchers on a part-time basis. This type of work can be found within the private sector or at a university. These are good positions for older adults who have an eye for detail and enjoy doing extensive research.
6. Freelance Consulting
Many companies hire seniors to work on a project-to-project basis to help fill a void in their staff. Many businesses that are downsizing need people who are experts in their field to work part-time doing freelance and consulting work. This type of work is often flexible and very rewarding.
