Now there’s a sickening feeling every morning when you wake up. “Will I be able to keep up with the cost of living?” You’re not expecting to buy a villa in the south of France. Just to live comfortably without financial stress.It’s not like you can go back to work “out there”. Think of the competition. Each day, we hear of more companies laying people off or going under themselves. There is an unprecedented unemployment disaster among us.

You may have a disability where choosing your own hours to work is exactly what you need. You may be only able to devote a couple of hours a day to the job. But you can look for a job that fits with your lifestyle. No spending money on commuting and a special wardrobe, either.If you have a good computer system with high-speed internet access, you have what you need to look for a work at home position in the “homeshoring” or telecommuting industry. Some examples of work needed by employers are:
graphic design

human resources
virtual call center agents
Chances are that you have the transferable skills to appeal to an employer. Whatever your career was before retirement, you should be able to find and apply for a job with your credentials.

Go to a search engine and type in “homeshoring or telecommuting jobs”. You’ll learn about this employment trend and have a better idea if it is something that would work with your lifestyle. Write down your skills and what you enjoy doing. Then set out to find the employers who are ready to hire you for a telecommuting job to see you through your retirement years.
