Seasonal & Temporary Jobs
Many boomers and retirees are now working temporary and seasonal jobs as well as project assignments.
There is a big demand in this area as employers generally do not have to pay benefits. Any time employers find hiring from a certain demographic is more cost effective you can be sure this will be given a great deal of attention.
Research has shown that the profitability per employee has risen substantially during the past five years and much of this is due to employers increased hiring on a temporary or project basis.
The percentage of the workforce that is temporary has increased from around 17% in 2009 to 25% in 2014. Because of this increase, there are many more temporary jobs or project assignments available to job seekers of all ages. These kinds of jobs are particularly attractive to older workers as benefits are not as necessary as they were when these workers were still raising a family and before some could take advantage of Medicare.

Seasonal/Winter, Summer Jobs
In addition to temporary jobs many boomers and retirees are now working seasonal jobs. These kinds of jobs are often misunderstood and when RetiredBrains asked readers to identify a number of seasonal jobs most could only point to holiday jobs; mostly in retail or jobs for accounting professionals during tax season.
