If you spent years working as a full time engineer, what could you make part time?

  1. Sep 30, 2012 #1
    I am trying to work my life out and I don't want my mathematical skills to go to waste, but I also don't want to be working my *** off for the rest of my life.

    So, I was wondering, if you worked full time as an engineer for several years getting lots of experience, would it be possible to still make a decent sum of money part-time after that?

    A lot of older colleagues who have retired from corporations now work part-time as consultants. Some basically started their own consulting business, and some hire other retirees. Mind one, many of them retired with generous benefits/pensions and/or retirement accounts after 4 or 5 decades of working in industry.

    Why don't you want to work as hard as the rest of us for the rest of your life?
