Some part-time job opportunities for senior adults include cashier, bookkeeper, tax preparer, tour guide and non-profit worker. Seniors should seek part-time positions in fields with which they have some experience or skills.
Seniors should visit their favorite retail shops to ask about retail cashier opportunities. Seniors with bookkeeping skills may find freelance part-time work with small companies that cannot afford to hire a full-time bookkeeper.
Large accounting firms typically seek tax preparers during the January through April tax season. Seniors with docent skills may prefer to seek tour guide positions at wineries, museums or other businesses that offer such positions. Docents are typically volunteers, but paid positions exist.
