Old age is the stage in life where one looks back with pride of the accomplishments in the past and the enjoyment of financial security after devoting ones prime years toiling for a better future. However, the reality is many of our elderly are now living in financial distress and the current economic situation is not helping to alleviate their condition. Most of our elderly are struggling every month stretching their social security checks. Some would even deprive themselves from their only vice like cable television just to make both ends meet. Finding employment is very difficult due to their age and jobs are difficult to find. Are home based jobs the perfect solution? Will they qualify? (Philippines accounting)
Home based data entry work is the best job that would fit the elderly for the following reasons:
1.It will not require special skills. For as long as they have a computer and a fast internet connection and the desire to work, they can do it.
2.High educational attainment is not required. For as long as they know how to read English and can follow instructions correctly.
3.High speed typing skill is not required. Most of the time they will only be required to fill up forms, research and copy paste information to be sent to clients, type documents and the like. They can choose what specific type of data entry job they want based on their aptitudes.
4.No need to go out of the comforts of their homes and brave the traffic every day. They can work at home wearing a house coat or bath robe and work at their own pace. No bosses shouting targets and deadlines. It is stress free.
5.No meetings and no conference calls.
6.No need to set up and rent an office.
7.It is a booming business. It is not affected by the recession. Data entry jobs are even outsourced outside of the United States such as India, Philippines, Singapore, Malaysia and others countries.
8.Professional experience is not required.
9.The money received as payment will be based on the dedication given.
10.No age limits.
There are web sites they can browse through that offer data entry programs. But be selective and must research thoroughly and make inquiries from those who have direct experience because nothing can beat that. One of the data entry programs with positive feedback from reviews and with many happy subscribers is the National Data Entry.
Old age should not prevent people from trying new things, be financially healthy and enjoy a comfortable quality of life. Growing old is a privilege not given to everybody, so our beloved elderly should embrace and make the best of it.
