Is employment for senior citizens available for men and women, and are there any age qualifications to meet? Does a senior have to be in top physical condition, or are infirmities allowed?
Are your carefully laid plans for a pleasant tour, although perhaps not royal, through your golden years seem to be stalling? Will employment for senior citizens be the answer to your dilemma?
You are not alone? The same feeling is infecting your senior citizen neighbor next door, your sixtyish friend down at the retirement center, your old buddy in the bowling league and your aging sister in Buffalo.
The truth is, you have options! We all do. Too often, we seniors tend to feel betrayed by our government and left to fend for ourselves at the mercy of an indifferent panicking society. Scrub away those thoughts!
You are no different than the forty old accountant that was cut loose by his business firm, or the thirty five year old new car salesman who is left to his own devices.
You are just older than them, but you have a lot more going for you than they do. Most of their experiences and trained talents and skills are still down the road in front of them. Yours are spread out in a panorama behind you.
Look back at your life. Now is the best of times for you to make the things you have learned over the years put you up in front of the growing crowd of employment seekers.
If you were to write down all you have experienced, dealt with, learned from, overcame, and grown from, it would fill an entire library shelf.
Don’t you think that from all of this knowledge and living you can find some things that would increase the performance and productivity of an employers business.
Don’t you realize that the sum of all your hands on training and acquired talents and skills would be of great value to some employer?
There are wheelbarrow loads of gold nuggets kicking around in your head, my friend. Grab hold of a few of them and transform them into that perfect job you are now dreaming about.
It is not as hard to accomplish this as you may think!
Here is a valuable gem of knowledge and fact that should stir up the juices inside of you.
Most vacant employment positions are not even advertised!
Whoa! What does this tell you?
There is no competition for these jobs outside of word of mouth. Why? There are many reasons why this is so.
Maybe the job has not been defined by the manager yet, he knows that the need exists but what will he call it? You can step in and give him a definition. Do some advance homework.
A harried business owner is overworked and wishing for a fairy godmother to wave her wand and provide the perfect assistant. Check out the company and tell him how much easier you can make his life, and earn him more profit as a byproduct.
You read an item in the newspaper, or saw it on the TV news, about a business making substantial growth spurts. That is your cue!
Call the company and inform them all the things you can do for them, and let them know you will be stopping by tomorrow, would he or she have time to spend a few moments with you.
Where can you look for employment for senior citizens? In your own head! Take advantage of your own experience and skills.
There are jobs out there waiting for you. Be creative and bold. It
