etirement is the time to reflect on just how far you’ve come, and if you have the itch to try something different in your golden years, consider one of these high-growth jobs.
These jobs are a good place to start.
You've been out of the workforce for a while, so you're probably looking for a job. But what kind of job? If you're looking to work with people in a place where everyone wears a uniform and sings praises to the mighty dollar, then McDonald's might not be the right fit.
But if what you want is something that lets your creativity shine while also providing stability and security, there are plenty of options out there! Here are some jobs that might appeal to retirees:
One of the most important things to consider when you’re considering making a career change is whether or not the new type of work you’re interested in will be available to you. If there aren’t many jobs available, then it’s probably not worth your time and effort. In this case, however, bookkeeping is actually one of the top jobs for retirees right now—and it's easy to see why!
As a bookkeeper, you'll be responsible for doing financial tasks such as recording transactions and entering them into ledgers (or keeping track of a company's finances). You'll also need excellent communication skills since much of your job involves communicating with clients via phone calls or emails. And while this may seem like a simple task at first glance (after all—who doesn't send emails?), it can quickly become overwhelming if done incorrectly due to poor grammar skills or improper format usage (i.e., using commas where colons should be used). Also make sure that every email has been reviewed by another person before sending out because some people have very different ideas about what constitutes proper grammar than others do!
If you're up for a little homework-related nostalgia, tutoring can be a great way to earn extra money. Of course, if you prefer to get your tutoring done in person, there are plenty of opportunities out there. But if you'd rather reach more students in less time (and who wouldn't?), online tutoring is also an option and one that's becoming increasingly popular. No matter which kind of tutor you become, though: You'll find that demand for tutors will never go away—in fact, it has been growing in recent years as more people seek out alternatives to traditional education methods and ways of learning outside the classroom.
So what exactly does an online tutor do? Well, just like the name suggests! They teach students from any subject area from anywhere around the world (or at least anywhere with internet access). And while this type of education may not carry quite as much weight as one provided by someone with a Ph.D., these days anyone can learn anything online thanks to platforms like Coursera and Khan Academy; so why not make some extra cash while doing so? Just note that any potential employer will likely require at least some experience teaching others before they'll allow their tutors on board—but once they give them their stamp of approval and hand over their list of clients' needs/wants/demands...the sky really is the limit here!
If you’re looking for a job that pays well and doesn't require a lot of physical exertion, medical transcriptionist may be right up your alley. To become a medical transcriber, you need to have excellent listening skills and an excellent typing speed (at least 75 words per minute), as well as strong communication skills. You also need good computer skills—you’ll be using software designed to help you type accurately and efficiently.
It's important to note that this job requires patience, as it's not always easy to find the right word or phrase when taking dictation from doctors who speak very quickly or use difficult medical terminology.
Travel planner or agent
Travel planning is a great job for retirees because it can be done from anywhere, remotely, and in your spare time. It's really just a matter of being able to book flights and hotels online. You can also do it from home or on your laptop if you have one handy.
Social media manager
If you're looking for a job that's in demand and suitable for retirees, you might want to consider social media management. While it may sound like an oxymoron, working with social media is actually something many older people are doing in their free time. It's also a good option for those who want to work from home or have other scheduling constraints.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that there will be 665,000 new jobs created by 2020 within online marketing and advertising occupations—that's more than any other industry! And if that weren't enough reason to go into social media management full-time, consider this: The median salary is $55,000 per year (and we all know how much room there is on the couch at this stage of our lives).
With so many new opportunities for retirees to connect with and explore the world around them, it makes sense that so many older adults are looking for ways to stay active in their later years. While there is no one-size-fits-all answer when it comes to a career transition for retirees, these ten jobs offer a good starting point for those who may be looking to find work on their own terms.
