How To Find Work For Retirees.
Would you like to find employers offering work for retirees?
Are you a senior citizen, or real close to it? Do you want to get yourself a job and make some money? What is your motivation to do this?
Are you running short of discretionary cash by the end of each month and are learning that living on a fixed income can be tough? Pensions and government checks are nice and steady. But they rarely grow in size.
Are you game to make the leap into the employment arena with both feet?
Then welcome to the wonderful world of work for retirees! I am not being frivolous about this. There is work for retirees in the job marketplace, lots of it.
But to find the perfect fit for you, and the best employer for you, will require an investment of time and effort on your part.
The ranks of the unemployed seem to be increasing each month. Many individuals have removed themselves from the effort even to find employment.
But there are jobs out there, business continues functioning and employers need people to fill vital functions necessary to the life of their enterprise.
Work for retirees exists, but the manner in which you, as a senior citizen, can put yourself into contention for filling a job has changed in both appearance, and packaging.
Yes, I mean packaging.
In the past, part and parcel of hiring on to draw a paycheck from a business included close scrutiny of benefits provided also. Today, the benefits are dwindling to next to nothing, and in many cases are in reality, nothing.
Part of a seniors attractiveness to a prospective employer will in effect be enhanced by the individual already having self provided benefits, such as medical coverage.
The president's healthcare program, if enacted, will perhaps alter this fact of life. But, for now, self provided benefits will play a role in your actually qualifying for work for retirees.
Keep in mind, despite the above facts, there are abundant opportunities of work for retirees. They may not fit the mold of jobs in the past, but they are employment making real paychecks, working for real businesses.
If you have read my words in the past, then you know your first step in the job hunt is to decide on the work you want to do. Yes, your idea of the job you want is important. Don't sell yourself short. Go for the work you really desire to do.
Then make a list of the specific employers you want to approach for work for retirees. Many senior retirees have found the most productive approach is to package themselves as seeking part time jobs.
This approach appeals to many employers because it fills a need they have, and yet they have not even decided to hire for. Keep in mind that you will not find employers in this position placing ads in the newspapers.
Key to this are your talents and your past work experience. Add the time you spend researching possible businesses that need your skills, and your preparation of both a verbal and written presentation.
Keep in mind that you are marketing the business of you, be persistent and you can get a great job for yourself. Work for retirees is a productive field if approached properly, take advantage of it and learn how.
