New York City, NY (PRWEB) April 22, 2014 -- Many people who reach their sixties don’t fit the stereotypical image of a senior looking forward to their first day of retirement. They feel they still have a lot to give, and seek to extend their active employment years. Although they may no longer be interested in full-time office work, the Internet and other new technologies have given rise to new work-from-home jobs that are attracting more and more "retired" people. eReflect notes that to compete for these jobs, seniors need to make sure that they are up to date on their computer and communication skills.
Students and seniors alike are now finding that there are jobs that allow for home-based work, a convenient solution since it involves added flexibility and there’s no need for commuting and transportation expenses. However, as eReflect points out, this virtual office environment is made possible through remote desktop and Internet connections. This means that in order to be eligible for these opportunities, seniors must make sure their vocabulary and typing skills are up to date. Internet abbreviations and new technological terms introduced in the last few years will be harder to understand, and seniors may find themselves at loss in the midst of unknown acronyms, jargon, and concepts. Looking into ways to improve and enrich vocabulary by learning social media terms, Internet lingo, and words used in general online communication will ensure a senior can not only understand but easily work with the latest international lingo of hashtags and texting acronyms.
Another important skill seniors need to consider is typing. 99% of work from home jobs require some level of typing efficiency. Seniors with good typing skills are more likely to be selected for data entry jobs, writing positions, and other part-time or full-time jobs that call for above average typing speed and accuracy.
Some senior citizens are ready for the online job marketplace, having already mastered these skills. eReflect reassures the rest that it’s easy to get up to speed. Many software companies, including eReflect, offer vocabulary and typing skills improvement programs through which anyone can enhance their employability potential.
Online games and other online activities also help people achieve vocabulary improvement. For those not concerned with vocabulary building, eReflect recommends playing typing games to sharpen up their typing accuracy and speed. Seniors who are not ready to retire can find a wide range of jobs to choose from when they have decent typing skills and an up-to-date vocabulary.
