How to maintain an active lifestyle with a long commute
Please use this form to submit any feedback you may have. I am a job seeker I posted this job. Take Sue Walbert. Her solution: working part time at the library. Walbert arranged to clock in two days a week through a job-sharing arrangement with a colleague who also wanted to cut back on hours. And it was fun learning how to do different things in the library that I didn't handle before, like online cataloging. After a few years, Walbert was ready to really retire from that job. Now she works part time as a bookkeeper, helping out with monthly billing for a horse boarding and training business, where she stables her own horse.
As it turned out, that was very profitable," she says. And in her spare time, Walbert is also slowly working on an associate degree in business at a community college. Whatever your motivation for working after retirement, here are five great part-time jobs to consider. Pay ranges, which vary based on experience and where you live, are derived from the U.
The nitty-gritty: Duties might include fielding questions, shelving books, helping patrons check out, tracking overdue material and sending notices, as well as cataloging and keeping an eye out for lost and damaged items.

The hours: Schedules vary widely. Big libraries or ones on university campuses may keep the doors open 24 hours a day, while small local libraries might offer limited day and evening hours. Pay range: Pay can vary widely based on location and type of library, with some smaller ones relying on volunteers. Qualifications: Experience working in libraries is desirable, as is an undergraduate or master's degree in library science.
Larger libraries favor research skills using library resources, databases and other tools, as well as the ability to get along with people. Some skills that will help: word processing, data entry, online searching, the ability to keep accurate records, an understanding of library operations and general secretarial skills. Love of books is a given. The nitty-gritty: In small businesses, bookkeepers handle a full range of financial records. You might take care of purchasing office supplies and processing the payroll. Other duties can include establishing and maintaining inventory database systems, tracking accounts receivable and accounts payable, maintaining checking and savings accounts, producing financial reports, following up on delinquent accounts and overseeing audits and reviews.
The hours: Vary by business. Frequently limited to one week midmonth and one week at the end of the month for invoicing or bill-paying functions. Annual pay range: Pay depends on advanced training, degrees and location. Qualifications: A degree in accounting is desirable. Relevant experience or formal training in accounting or auditing services is a plus. Other key skills: doing data entry and being detail oriented, adept with financial and related computer software, and handy with a calculator.
The nitty-gritty: You typically help elderly, ill or disabled people with everyday activities ranging from bathing and getting dressed to running errands. Other duties might include light housekeeping, companionship, grocery shopping, meal preparation and medication monitoring. The hours: If you're working at someone's home, the client may require only three or four hours a day for two or three days a week. These jobs are often booked through a home care agency.
You might opt for a part-time position in an assisted living facility or hospice. But regardless, having the cert and teaching classes has, at least in my case, made me feel WAY more confident in having clients. Anyone else having this problem? Anyway, thank you Nicole for your honesty in this series. Ah I love hearing that this series was helpful! I know it can be SO hard having patience when it comes to blogging, but definitely hang in there.
Even then, my readership was still mostly other WordPress users. Love your Btone classes and this blog so much. Wish I could have you come talk to my high school students about your career path! I sure as hell have.

Thanks for letting me know that it will get better. Hang in there—sounds like the light at the end of the tunnel is already in sight for you!
