"Bridge Jobs" appeal to seniors who contemplate retirement (or buyouts)
Several media outlets today discussed the concept of “bridge jobs”, especially for active seniors or people who accept large severance or buyout agreements, as an alternative to “retirement”. Some employers could provide part-time bridge jobs for training other workers, or for part-time customer support. Other ideas could involve substitute teaching or career-switching, or various part-time jobs that emphasize selling to the public, conducting surveys or research, and the like.
Employment Digest has an article on the subject here.
ABC presented the concept as part of its “retirement revolution” tonight.
