3 Types of Gig Work Perfect for Retirees

We know transitioning to retirement can be life-changing, both in exciting and nerve-wracking ways. But taking that jump doesn’t need to put an end to life as you know it, especially if you’re someone who enjoys working and staying busy.

If you’re a retiree looking to pull in some extra cash, or you have a knack for business and want to spend your time working a flexible opportunity, there’s a gig that can work for you.

From app-based gigs, such as shopping for strangers or driving people around your city, to working a seasonal, in-person job, or maybe even a remote, work-from-home opportunity, figure out what works best for you and go for it! (Psst. Nothing beats the Arise® Platform. Read on to learn why.)

Here are a few gigs you can get started with today:

App-Based Gigs

Your new gig is right at your fingertips with app-based gigs such as ridesharing. These apps provide quick and easy ways to earn extra money on your own time. They allow you to work when and where you want without any commitment. 

Anyone can take up an app-based gig, too. Whether you’re handy and willing to work for someone around the house, or you’re an animal lover who would rather walk someone’s pets, there are countless possibilities available for app-work.

If your ideal situation is making money from your phone without needing any prior work experience, app-based gigs are the perfect match for you. Just remember that most app-based gigs will require you to use your own equipment, such as a car or tools. 

Seasonal Work

Working after retirement doesn’t mean you need to commit to a new full-time job. If you’re retired and want to stay busy, a seasonal job might be the perfect fit for you. Today’s work environment offers many flexible options for those who want to earn money on a temporary or part-time basis. 

If you’re not looking to sign yourself up to a long-term role, seasonal retail work is a great option. When working at a store, you can work a few shifts a week. If working with children interests you, consider a job as a substitute teacher — you’ll be able to enjoy the work that you do and only accept jobs depending on your availability. 

Are you ready to jump back into the workforce? Seasonal jobs are a popular and productive way for retirees to take advantage of their free time.

Remote Opportunities

Are you a tech-savvy person? Do you enjoy talking to people and working independently? Consider an at-home, remote side gig by launching your own business and registering for the Arise® Platform. With this, your future is just a few clicks away. 

 When you register to use the Arise® Platform, you can use your customer service business to offer support from home<span style=”font-weight: 400;”> whenever your schedule allows.

You’ll support some of the largest companies in the world and the best part is you don’t answer to anyone! This is your business, which means you’re the boss, giving you complete control — including when, where, and how much you want to work. 

Once you register to use the Arise® Platform,  you’ll be well on your way to earning money from the convenience of your own home, choosing your own hours, and enjoying a flexible schedule by providing customer service and support — all the while enjoying your best years.
