If you’re a retiree, there are plenty of part-time job choices available for you to choose from. In fact, you may be in a position where you could get the best job you’ve ever had! Because you’re likely getting retirement income in the form of a pension, you won’t have to worry too much about the pay the job offers, and you’ll be able to pick something based on what you love.
As a retiree, one option is to help other people do their jobs as a consultant. These jobs pay very well and your experience will give you credibility. You can work a few weeks and take a few weeks off with the level of income from such a job.
If you want to be a teacher more directly, consider becoming a real teacher! Colleges sometimes have adjunct professor job opportunities that are incredibly satisfying, both financially and intellectually. You may need to complete a course in computing if your computer skills are a little rusty, as computers are used in most classes now.
If you want to work helping other people, consider a job as a patient advocate. Your know-how, calm and experience can help those in the healthcare system to have a less stressful and more compassionate experience.
You can also put those math skills to use as a bookkeeper. This is a job you can do from home and it pays quite well. It’s a great job to have around tax time and, of course, being a retiree, you can always schedule a getaway for April 16!
These part-time jobs can offer a bit of extra money and activity that can make retirement more enjoyable, and squash any boredom that may be creeping into your life.
