This article is poorly written, maybe I will wait for the Santa claus Job, but no I am thin. Give us Elderly a break, your screwed, and you will not age gracefully without $$$$$$$$$$$
For Gods sake.
Why not add Grim Reaper costume wearer for Halloween?
Sorry but age discrimination now starts at 50 and these people here-except for their posed shots? Have no chance at anything respectable and better hope they have good SSI.
This is "No Country For Old Men".
This article was worthless. I you already have the degree you can always negotiate with your employer at the time of retirement to work part time in any of those careers.
You are not giving us any more information than we already have, other than we should spend money and get a degree!
Just the fact that this article was written speaks to the open and blatant age discrimination which exists, ranking right up there with discrimination against white males. Both are encouraged and widely practiced by HR managers.

Wealth will be redistributed sufficiently to keep the very bottom from causing social unrest, but if that fails to work FEMA is ready.
Welcome to the decline of a nation.
Great article and good advice. However, one glaring omission; they left out "panhandler" in their list of jobs for seniors
My father retired from engineering at age 55. He moved to the country and to suppliment his income raised a huge garden and sold vegetables at the local farmers market. My mother worked as a caregiver for a local elderly woman.
My sister is retired now and working part time doing computer support for local residence.
My brother works part time now and suppliments his income selling garden sculptures at local craft fairs.
You can make your opportunity if you think outside the box.
