If you're over 50, you might have found yourself in the same situation I was in a year ago: out of work and worried that my age would make it impossible to find another job. Well, I'm happy to say that I've since gotten a new gig, and now I want to share with you the steps I took to find this new opportunity.
If you're thinking about retirement, a job as a substitute teacher might be just the thing for you. This is a great way to stay active in the classroom and make some money on the side.Here are some other jobs that retired teachers can do:
The Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) provides training and work experience to low-income people over 55 that can help them get back into the workforce—or back out of it, if they prefer!
LinkedIn is a great tool for job-seekers of all ages. It gives you the ability to build an online resume and share it with employers that are looking for people like you. However, it's also important to remember that LinkedIn isn't your only source for finding a job. You might be able to find one through traditional means such as newspaper ads or word of mouth from friends and family members as well. Good luck!
