Jobs Senior Citizens

Reality is setting in for many Seniors. They are going to have to supplement their income. As troubling as that might be for some, it is not an insurmountable problem. It’s not like you have never worked before. It’s not like you don’t have skills and a good work ethic. You have what every employer is looking for and you can be flexible on your hours and pay. Jobs senior citizens is a phrase that is becoming more and more familiar.

Put yourself in the employers shoes. There are a large number of people in the senior work pool. Most are educated, hard working, honest, reliable and most of all flexible in their requirements. Why wouldn’t you hire them? Jobs senior citizens is on the mind of more and more employers. The seniors only problem is getting your name in front of those doing the hiring. You’ve been there before so use that no how. Think about your network of friends and business associates. Use networking and social media to let them know you are looking for part time work.

Okay I can here your grumbling. You are probably thinking, no way am I going to be a greeter at a big box store or a part time janitor. I’ve worked too long and too hard to spend my retirement doing that. Well before you blow it off, you need to take a serious look at your finances and make sure you’re as financially well off as you think you are.

if you do decide you need to supplement your income there are alternatives to those ideas mentioned above. Internet marketing is a viable alternative. It allows you to keep your dignity, regulate your own hours and determine how much you will make. It will require a new way of thinking for most of you. You will need to get some training and also be self disciplined. The training need not be expensive as there a a number of good training sites with pricing structures that you can fit into your budget. For most of you the self discipline was developed years ago so that shouldn’t be a problem.

Don’t let the name (internet marketing) scare you. Millions of people all over the world are making modest incomes over the internet and more and more of them are senior citizens. Use Google, Yahoo, Bing or other search engines to find a few training sites that interest you. Narrow your search down to two and then thoroughly check them out

If they are promising quick bucks or require a long term commitment continue your search. There are good, honest training sites available and they don’t have to be expensive to be good.

Why earn your extra money working for someone else when you can work for yourself?

I am 50+ and refuse to take menial jobs for minimal pay. So I run a few different small (and very small) businesses, on-line and off. Anyone who can learn, can learn how to handle a computer. Turning a hobby into a retail business offline is another viable option for those who are truly pc-phobic but taking it online always increases sales. You'd be surprised at the numbers of people who are clueless about computers or virtually so.

Thanks for the comment. I find there are a lot of people who are afraid to use their computer for anything other than games and email. I tell them if they can figure that out they can do the rest with a little training

Thanks Cynthia. I'm not sure why seniors are so afraid of their computers.

Computers can be very frustrating! I've been finding that while some people tend to be afraid of feeling foolish it's also true that using computers can be a humbling experience. Sometimes it's not at all obvious what's wrong. For me, I recently found out that some files were necessary and yet could not be updated because I did not have administrator rights on my own system;)

Seniors make the best employees. I think employers are coming around to that idea. That being said, self employment is better. Internet Marketing holds great potential at any age.
