I'm a 62 year old unemployed school teacher that needs a job to support my 15 year old daughter. When I apply for a school teaching job they will not hire me due to my age. I also worked in advertising for over 20 years. Any suggustions on how to make some money at 62 years old will help. Thanks in advance.

Sorry if this was said already but you could always go into security. I know a lot of retirees do that. Also, you could sub at some local schools, since you do have the experience. In high school we had many subs and most of them had no idea what they were doing. We would end up having a free period or study time instead of an actual class.

I think the most easy job for a school teacher is that of writing an ARTICLE AND GET PAID FOR IT,so that from the comfort fo home you can earn.....400$ 500$ 600$...as much as you can,there is no limit.....just write articles and get paid for it! http://www.associatedcontent.com/join.html?refer=38619 good luck uncle!

Dont give up, you will be able to find a job. I cant see any defect(maybe the age) about you it just that most of the companies will give priority to those who has working experience.

As you are very senior to me, I would suggest you to do a business. Because, if you go fro a online job, then you income mayn't satisfactory as you are too old to do it fast. But I have a grate business opportunity which can be done World Wide & Off line. You don't need any establishment to setup your office & the returns are ex termly good. If you will really interested, then add as me friend's list i will give a 100% guaranteed OFF LINE business which can be done any part of the world. As i can't post website address here which voilet Mylot's guideline.

I think working from home might be best options for instance MyLot will bring in some earnings the more you get use to using it. Then there a number of other websites that also do surveys and more of course discussion websites.Good luck.
