Author: Kevin Blue
For some, reaching the golden age simply means looking back at life with pride at the accomplishments in the past and enjoying financial security, after devoting a lifetime working for a better future. But this reality doesn't apply to most older people, as many are still living in financial distress, and struggling to stay afloat forces them to work even if it is time to take a rest in life.
But finding employment is difficult when age becomes a factor, not only because physical wear is a major issue but because employers look for younger and more qualified applicants. Fortunately, there are home-based jobs that do not require special skills, high educational attainment, and age limit.
Data-Entry Job This job only requires typing skill as what is involves is transcribing handwritten data, numbers, symbols, spreadsheet information to computer programs. The demand for this job is high, as almost all companies use the Internet and require someone to transfer a form of data to a computer program.
Writing Job This one requires a little bit of writing skill. But while not everyone is or could be a good writer, many elderly know how and can write. Freelance writing jobs are all over the net, it just takes patience to find a client.
