    What are jobs, either part-time or full-time, for men over 60?

    I know someone let go from a job after 27 years. He has experience as a driver in a retirement facility. He also  worked as an aide in other helping professions many years ago. What kinds of jobs should he look for?

      Thanks, Effer! Those are all great ideas. Which ones might pay a decent salary so he can pay his bills? Minimum wage won't do it. :-( I am looking at city jobs. We'll see. :-)

      Vee....Pay rates vary EVERYWHERE. Municipality jobs pay fairly well, w/ good benefit pkgs.  I know Limo drivers do well, combo of pay & impressive "tips." Civ. Ser jobs are all well-paid.w/ben's. All I listed except "Dog-Care" would be over min.w

    What's stopping him getting the same job elsewhere?

      I'm sure he'll look into it if one comes available. There aren't a lot of openings or a lot of options.

      Might be worthwhile phoning all the local retirement facilities/care homes/day centres. Good luck to him.

    How about a Driver's Education Instructor?

      Interesting! I wonder what kind of education or certification that would require.

      I belive that it varies from state to state and since I so not know his state I cannot say. If you Google "driver's ed instructor certification" and include the state then you should find out.

    If he is able bodied and doesn't have to nurse his back (like many of us), I would say apply to the state. I see positions in which people are serving as couriers, making deliveries, moving things from office to office, that kind of thing, There are also good maintenance positions, and even if he only works a few years, five years will vest a pension if he lives in some states.

    Interestingly, a number of years ago when linotypes became obsolete, my 60-year-old uncle, a typesetter in a print shop, went to college and got a degree in computers. He went back to work in his regular job, but just a little different method. I think he was close to 60 then.
