Work at Home Jobs

By Art Koff, Founder Retired Brains

Many boomers, seniors and retirees are looking for legitimate ways to work at home and earn money to enable them to live the lifestyle they had planned during their retirement years or bring in revenue to supplement what they are earning from their job.  Some are also looking for ways to create an income while they are in-between jobs.

There are many ways to use your interests and experience to work at home.  In some cases you can work for a company and in others you can work for yourself.

RetiredBrains has included brief success stories from a number readers outlining the small businesses they started with little or no financial investment that are now turning a profit.  Click here to see a List Small Businesses Enterprises Started by Boomers, Seniors and Retirees

The 10 Top Industries for Work-from-Home Jobs

Where are the Work-from-Home Jobs for Boomers, Seniors & Retirees?
In addition to job opportunities available for boomers & seniors outside of the home, working from home is a major source of income for many older Americans. If you are comfortable working with a computer and the phone, telecommuting or working from home is a solid option. An understanding of technology would, in some cases, make you even more valuable.

Work-from-home “jobs” for boomers, seniors and retirees include full-time or part-time jobs, freelance and consulting jobs, and temporary or seasonal work.

According to data analyzed by the home-based job search service FlexJobs, the top 10 work from home jobs are as follows:

1. Sales
2. Medical & Health
3. Customer Service
4. Administrative
5. Computer & IT  
6. Education & Training
7. Web & Software Dev
8. Accounting & Finance
9. Manager
10. Research

Applying for Work-from-Home Jobs
Before you start applying for work-from-home jobs, consider the type of work you’d like to do from home. Do you want to work 100% from home, or would you like to get out of the house as well? For example, Sales is a field that allows you to work from home and do in-person visits, whereas Customer Service jobs will be done entirely from home. Know which you’d prefer and focus on those jobs.

Steer Clear of Work-from-Home Job Scams
There are a lot of dubious business opportunities and outright scams in the work-from-home job niche, so be sure to use caution and trust your instincts when applying to jobs. Research any company thoroughly before accepting employment. Do not give out personal information like bank account and social security numbers. Never “invest” or pay to get a job. And don’t be pressured into accepting a job on-the-spot without being able to do your research.  For more information on scams click here.
