Money Crashers recommends retail work, call center positions, teaching and tutoring, and childcare services for senior citizens seeking part-time employment. Many seniors already have the related qualifications and experience desired by employers seeking candidates for such positions. These jobs often offer much more flexibility and less stress than other fields.
Retirees can seek less intensive, more flexible part-time work with previous employers who are usually glad to retain a valuable employee. Retirees with advanced degrees or specialized experience are ideal candidates for consulting positions. More ambitious seniors may consider starting a retail business, and the Internet enables seniors to start an online business with part-time commitment.
