She has been working at the Berry Patch Farm this summer but it is a seasonal operation and her last day is Nov 1st.

Post up if you know of anyone who is hiring. She has been doing Administrative Assistant type work for the past few years but she does hold a B.S. in Mathematics from Colorado State and is a few classes short from a B.A. in Accounting from Regis. Any type of work would be fine even if it isn't along the lines of her education.

Thank you in advance
Mike

Bonni hires people for a company called Alpine Access. The hire Customer service people who work from their homes and are linked into main sites computers. Like when you call 1-800-flowers, J Crew or GE Financial. Those people are sitting at home in their bathrobes on their home computer.

It only pays $9 and hour and isn't what I would think of as a great job. Don't know if that is somthing that would appeal to her. She has to be computer literate and able to work in multiple windows at one time (That's part of the interview) http://www.alpineaccess.com/external/index.html

There's always a need for Special Ed Aides/Para's in just about every school. The pay isn't good but if she would like to work with special needs kids she would be able to work the school year which is pretty nice. My daughter is desperate to hire for her classroom.

It's that time of year again. My mom needs a job to keep her occupied. I have been applying for her on Monster and a few other sites but there is a huge problem with hiring "older" folks. Most companies won't do it even though that is illegal.

Post up ideas. I attached her resume:

There are a few entry level positions in customer service or processing available at my company, and they happily hire older people all the time.
